Windows 7: How do I get Spell-Checker to learn words?

How do I get Spell-Checker to learn words?

I enjoy using "Notepad++" and have successfully downloaded/installed "Spell-Checker" but unless the the word which I've used isn't in Spell-Checker's Dictionary, it adamantly refuses to Learn the word that I've used.

How do I activate "Learn"?

Regrettably, ThrashZone, I am not permitted that option.

These are the Options I am Given
"Replace" (Replace with a word that already exists in Spell-Checker's limited Dictionary.)
"Learn" (This Option doesn't work.)
"Ignore" (This Option is Self-Evident.)

As difficult as it is to believe, Spell-Checker has never encountered the proper name, "Facebook".

Hi,
I'm sort of unsure which spell checker you're using ?
Is it a add-on for notepad++ ?

Yes, TrashZone, it's an add-on for Notepad++ which is a program called, "ASpell"

Would an Edited Screenshot help you to understand what I'm up against?

Have you tried DSpellCheck? I haven't tried either and I'm not sure if it will solve your problem but it's worth a shot. https://sourceforge.net/projects/dspellcheck/

Suggest:

Use TinySpell instead:

Download tinySpell - MajorGeeks

It doesn't just work in Notepad but also your browser and lots of other apps. It's checking my spelling as I type this reply.

You can add any unrecognized word to the dictionary:

Optionally set it to run on demand only:

Let me see if I understand you correctly, Callender.

Are you suggesting that I should trash "Notepad++" in favour of "Notepad"?

I have a Disability which I have not mentioned. Recently, due to Iritis, I have become totally blind in my (Previously Dominant) Right Eye and am relearning how to Read and Write with my Left (Recessive) Eye.

Though it may sound trivial to you, for many years I have been writing my Autobiography in the form of "Autobiographical Incidents" which span my 67 years of life due to having inherited an Eidetic Image Memory from my late Mother.

Unlike "Notepad", "Notepad++" has the ability to Magnify Text. Without that "Magnification Ability" my Writing Career is over.

My question is this:

Will your "Spell Checker/Learner Program" also work on "Notepad++" as it does on "Notepad"?

ADDENDUM

While I have other Disabilities, overcoming my Inability to Read and Write is paramount.

I'm suggesting that you try TinySpell. It doesn't just work with Notepad alone but pretty much any application in Windows where you can type. That includes Notepad++

If you check Tinyspell settings you can specify larger test for the prompts.

You will get better spell checking options as well as other features from a full blown word processor such as Word or (if you want free) OpenOffice. Notepad++ is designed really for coders to get the programming keywords and syntax. In my opinion it isn't really good as a word processor for writing a document. It looks like callender make a mistake but you can make out notepad++ in at least one of his screenshots.
