    My Daughter would like to install a spell checker on her laptop computer, where can she get a free one - UK English.

    ieSpell A great spell checker plug-in for IE (but works with Avant in the right-click menu as well). It enables one to check spelling in forums such as this one or when filling out forms online. http://www.iespell.com/

    pastork, is that in UK English or American? Most of the spell checkers are in American English and we don't want that.

    Cheers,

    Gwyneth,

    I have just begun using a good freeware email client called Pegasus Mail, and it has a spell checker that allows you to choose between "UK English Dictionary" or "US English Dictionary." so at least there is a UK spell checker for email available. Does this help at all?
