    Hi all,

    I post at lots of forums and while I'm a good speller I go too fast and make lots of typos, which is really embarassing when you post as much as I do.

    I've seen people here, especially mods, ask for a spell checker. Well I just found an AWESOME one that's free and works incredibly well. Only works with IE but works with this and any other forum or online forms. No adware or spyware (they say) and 100% user rating from Cnet.

    Save time, by not worrying about typos as you go. Just right click when you are finished and it will spell check and make suggestions, just like Word does.

    This is the best invention since the Internet IMHO. I'm in love!

    What a wonderful idea. It has 100% positive reviews on Cnet, from 48 reviewers.

    Thanks Linda!,

    You've just added a whole bunch of time to what I can do with a day. No more time wasted manually spell checking online.

    You are welcome all!

    Herb said: "fall, feel, or fell"

    That's part of my problem! I know how to spell I just go too fast and the words in my head aren't always the ones that come flying out of my finger tips. Many times however they are real words - that just don't fit the context or make sense.

    "I wish eye had too extra hans two mike tongs easier win I post."

    So I just downloaded another to try that does alot more with grammar, caps, thesaurus and has several languages. It can also do SHORTHAND. You just enter frequent phrases and it types them. Enter "TGIF" once and it will type "Thank God it's Friday".

    Just downloaded the 15 day trial but if it works really well I don't mind paying 40 bucks at all for the time it could save if it does what it is supposed to.

    I have a bunch of new affiliate programs coming. I already work 12 hours a day 7 days a week. So I either have to type faster and do more in less time or hire more help. I'd rather pay 40 for software that does not take breaks or require managing!

    Im one that doesnt really double check for spelling mistakes. This is a relaxed forum, now if I'm writing up a business proposal thats a whole different story.

    Just remember that when I type "form", I meant "from" and when I type anything that ends in "mnet", I meant to write "ment" - like management. If everybody can remember this, then I do not need spell checker.

    Mike,

    Charlie could really benefit from this. With Father's Day so close, why not give this to him as a gift?

    What I really need is a "Thought Checker." So often my mind moves quicker than my fingers, and I make changes when I proofread before posting. These changes sometimes interrupt the overall message, and I later wonder what the heck I was doing.

    I've been looking at various forum software lately, and I'm surprised that a spell checker isn't a common feature. Seems like it would be a very useful one.

    Thanks for the info, Linda. You always find the coolest things!

    I just noticed the Top Cash ad banner at the bottom of ABW - it says "Promt Payment."

    If you ask me, I'd say someone didn't mind their "p's" and "q's." Top Cash should promptly tell the person who did that banner to redo it and check spelling next time.

    I once did up a banner and a page graphic for Chevrolet. It was spelled CHEVOLET with a matching chevolet.html landing page ....

    They finally caught the typo, but by that time that banner and page had gotten into the forums and news and the page views soured. Convienced them to leave it up for 3 more months and concentrate on putting the RED bleeding colors back into the .jpg car image files. Seems their publishing program re-optomized .jpgs by 40% everytime they made page changes till all the red and purplish images sucked.

    This image was washed out, mottled and still 68K in size. I redid some images for them with the proper visual results.



    Now a real Red car looks like this

    ODE TO A SPELL CHECKER
    by Jerrold H Zar

    I have a spelling checker.
    It came with my PC.
    It plane lee marks four my revue
    Miss steaks aye can knot sea.

    Eye ran this poem threw it,
    Your sure reel glad two no.
    Its vary polished in it's weigh.
    My checker tolled me sew.

    A checker is a bless sing.
    It freeze yew lodes of thyme.
    It helps me right awl stiles two reed,
    And aides me when aye rime.

    Each frays come posed up on my screen
    Eye trussed too be a joule.
    The checker pours o'er every word
    To cheque sum spelling rule.

    Bee fore a veiling checker's
    Hour spelling mite decline,
    And if we're lacks oar have a laps,
    We wood bee maid to wine.

    Butt now bee cause my spelling
    Is checked with such grate flare,
    Their are know fault's with in my cite,
    Of nun eye am a wear.

    Now spelling does knot phase me,
    it does knot bring a tier.
    My pay purrs awl due glad den
    With wrapped word's fare as hear.

    To rite with care is quite a feet
    Of witch won should bee proud,
    And wee mussed dew the best wee can,
    Sew flaw's are knot aloud.

    Sow ewe can sea why aye dew prays
    Such soft wear four pea seas,
    And why eye brake in two averse
    Buy righting want too pleas.
