Are you wanting it for your browser? If you're running the ie browser you can download ieSpell - Spell Checker add-on for Internet Explorer

Most spell checkers are application specific, What are you wanting spell checker for? IE, Firefox? or for writing applications? Firefox and Internet explorer both have spell checkers! Using firefox now and by default it checks my spelling.

ieSpell - Spell Checker add-on for Internet Explorer

Scroll down the page to this one- ieSpell v2.6.4 (build 573) released!

It is what a lot of of us use on the forum.

I use tinyspell

There are 2 versions. 1 free and 1 not. It runs in the system tray and changes from white to yellow and dings to let you know a spelling error has occurred. The web site also has dictionaries for download.

Hope this helps.

Shantelle.

IE 9 and Spell Check
Can anyone please explain to me why IE9 does not have a native spell-check capability? All other browsers seem to have it. Is there a technical reason that prevents IE from having this? Has MS ever explained why spell-check is not included as a feature of IE (especially in 9 Beta and RC)? Thanks
