Windows 7: Internet Explorer 9 Beta (64-bit) Spell Checker

27 Sep 2010   #11

Windows 7 Ulitmate 32bit
 
 

Seriously? IE 9 STILL has no built in spell check? I don't get it. How hard can it be to integrate something that you've been experts at since the 90s? How long has spell-check been in MS Word? As many forms and things need INPUT in the Internet era, you would think Microsoft would see the light. Let's hope it makes it to the final version. I hate using some random add-on to get my spellcheck.

Copied this from their support forum on Yahoo Groups:

"Hi Buzzard, Thank you for your report on ieSpell compatibility with IE9 Beta. Please note that ieSpell is a 32 bits application hence will work only in the 32

IESPELL didn't even work that well when I tried it on IE 7, so I don't want it even even if it was comptabile with Windows 7 64-bit. It didn't spell check in certain areas such as forum posts etc..
IE7Pro is not compatible with Windows 7 and it is a junky app that looks full of bloatware.

This is crazy and annoying. I gave up on WMP for iTunes because they refused to add podcast support and now it's time to give up on IE for Firefox and Chrome because Microsoft refuses to add a built in spell checker.

I didn't discover ieSpell until I was using IE8, but it works fine on the forums I've tried including this one.

I'm sure I used ieSpell with Internet Explorer in the past and there was some problem with it that made it a hassle to use compared to the native spell check in Firefox and Chrome and I gave up on it.
Maybe it had to be launched manually each time I wanted to spell check instead of automatically highlighting misspelled words as I typed.

I've never had any problems using ieSpell on various versions of IE, think I've been using it since IE6, certainly on versions 7, 8 and now 9, but these have all been on 32 bit machine's.

It's works in all the forums I post in, like now all I do is type a reply and right click on an empty space inside the box and I have the option to Check Spelling, which I do as routine, even though I'm good at spelling I like to make sure that my messages are correct.

That still isn't anything like having native support like every other browser. With other browsers, you get instant feedback with a red squiggly line under misspelled words as you type. No need to install third party add-ons to the browser that could cause problems and then also have to remember to manually spell check.
On top of this, they don't work with 64-bit OS anyway, so it is not even an option.
Microsoft just needs to add native spell checking to IE.

I don't know about IE 9 but Microsoft claim that ieSpell won't work in the 64 bit IE 8. I believe them.

Why MS have never included a native spellchecker is a good question.

This is exactly the question I have. Why after 9 iterations of Internet Explorer are we still relying on 3rd party apps to check spelling? This makes absolutely no sense at all to me. This should have been a standard a long time ago. I'm using IE9 right now and I like it a lot. If they don't infuse a spell check, I'll go back to Google Chrome in protest. Are the developers having discussions about this at all?
