Do you utlize spell check
Since I spell quite well, I rarely need spell check. Occasionally I use a word which I'm not sure how it's spelled.
I admit to being a bad speller....OK?
The spell check needs checking because it is usually American and corrects everything incorrectly.
There's a spell check?
Sometimes I will type the message in Word to use that spell check. Then I copy and paste. Other times I just give it my best guess and keep going.
I tend to use a dictionary.
I usually forget that there is a spell check facility on the BB. Mind you, if I used it, it would probably try to correct "colour", "cheque", "programme", "Saviour", and a host of other British English words.
People struggle with the words "then" and "than" and their proper useage.
I was going to spellcheck, than I realized I'd rather not do that, as I would rather leave misspelled words intact then use a program to correct them. Get it? Got it? GOOD!!!!!
I think one also has to DL something to "utlize" it (spellcheck). LOL!
IMHO this is a redundant term! English is of the British.
Those of us on this side of the Pond speak "American" (not sure of Canada, though ! :smilewinkgrin
So I checked "other" in the poll as I don't even see a spellcheck option.
There is a spell check on the posting site, in the upper right hand corner, next to two other options.
My typing skills are to be called into question. I will often hit "S" instead of "L" (same finger on the opposite hand). I was once typing the church doctrine and I needed the word "all". The spell check didn't catch it because it is a word. We caught it in a deacons meeting and they got a good chance to rib me about my language.
All I can say is "Thank God for spell checker!"
That is correct Jim, I have been schooled in the British spelling so it never fails to annoy me .....:tonofbricks:

Spell check in this forum requires a download, and we aren't allowed to download anything at work, so I have never used it.
I do spell check in my brain.
Firefox has a built-in spell checker but it does not work in Quick Reply. I usually hit Go Advanced and check myself, though.
I have a program on the pc that spell checks for me.
It's just amazing how far technology is getting these days.
