Default Spelling???

As most of you know I can't spell worth a hoot. So is there a good free spell check? If it makes a difference I have Google Chrome.

Measure once cut twice and it's still to short.

Don, are you looking for a general spell checker or for times when you are posting on this (and other) forums. I use google chrome as well and if I type a word incorrectly, it underlines the word in red. Now, if you type a word incorrectly, but use an actual word, it won't recognize that. As an example, if I mean to type the word "when", but type "whet" instead, it won't underline whet as it is an actual word.

We don't need no stiiinkin' spell checker...

Woodworking forums have their own vocabulary...new words get added every day (and sometimes, every post)...

...so whatever you type, it would then be spell-checked against the then current version...which would now have your previously misspelled word.

That being the case, the word will then not be considered misspelled and therefore understood by all the forum readers...


...makes sense to me...

Yes I am Vince. I hd it until recently but now it's gone. I misspelled the word "had" in my last sentance and nothing happened.

Don, in Chrome, follow these steps to ensure your spell checker is working:

On the top right, click on the 3 dots, then click on settings
scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on advanced
scroll down on that page to the "languages" section where you will see "language" and "spell check"
my languages is set to "english" and my "spelling" section is set to "English(United States)"

If yours aren't set, you can click the down arrow to the right of those options to change accordingly

see my attached screen shot

Got a spell-checker with Firefox,(Love it)

one can add his personal words in it.
It does understand nothing!!m , so one could write no senses as non-senses either or as their
as one likes or has one like.
No problem.
Anyway I do use it.

Works with languages packs, got: French France , Canadian French , English, American English , etc

Regards

Don most of us don't get too concerned if you use there instead of their or to instead of too. Most misspelled words we can figure out. On rare occasion I will go into a post and correct something if the misspelling is so bad that it makes it difficult to understand what the poster was trying to say. Mostly I've edited thread titles. BTW, I use Firefox and it has a spell checker. My spelling is pretty good but my typing is terrible so it mostly shows me that.
DaninVan and Danman1957 like this.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.
