spell check?

Postby andrewuk » Wed Jul 15, 2009 4:19 pm

Hi,

I have just started posting in this forum even though I joined a while ago..

Could anyone tell me if there is a spell check function in this forum and where can I find it? :smile:

I'm not that bright so please bear with me!

Thanks in advance.

Hi Andrew and nice to meet you here!

I don't think there is a spell check but depending on the explorer you use you can download add-ons and accessories which allow you to check the spelling

Hello Manapa,

Nice to see you here too! I visited your website and your story about your feline friend caught my eyes!

Thanks for the reply. I'm using firefox. I'm trying to see how and where I can add add-on..

Being a computer and technology illiterate, I'll probably ask a neighbour or a friend!

With metta,

Andrew

Hi Andrew,

If you are using Firefox, it is automatic. Just type something incorrectly and you will see a squiggly line under the word. That means it is misspelled. Or it could mean it is a foreign language (such as Pali) which Firefox doesn't recognize.

edit: You can also edit the misspelled word with Firefox by right clicking on the word and seeing the suggestions offered by Firefox.

Hello David and Manapa,

Thank you so much for your help.

In the end I figured out how to download the add on and it's working now.

Thanks again!
