When I bought a language pack for Office 2007 (Japanese pack), it included everything EXCEPT a Japanese spell checker. Microsoft dropping spell checkers across its software range seems to be a common occurrence.

I don't see why it was a problem to add it. Maybe they'll add it in an update...

I can't seem to figure out how this ieSpell works. I installed it but when I type wrong spellings on purpose on textboxes on IE9, I don't see the red underline that you see on Firefox's spelling checker.

Guess I got used to a browser with a native spelling checker. We can't tell why they hell did IE9 not have one when its a very crucial need and since every other browser has it. Also IE9's download manager can't even resume most of the paused downloads, since it starts all over again. I dunno why the developers of IE almost certainly purposely missed adding these very basic yet very important abilities a browser should have which is forgive me to say, a stupid decision.

ieSpell is not a real-time spell checker. You have to right-click when you're finished typing, and click 'Check Spelling'. Get Speckie, it's the best.

Please notice that Speckie is not working on pinned website.
For me, I will pin Hotmail to the taskbar. Therefore, I am finding alternative solution.

I don't use pinned sites, I just open IE. I don't need to close a browser to go to other website(s).

Of course it does
Unlike ieSpell it's real-time. There are still a few things to work out and improve, but at least I don't have any issues like with ieSpell which is why I chose it too.

After using ieSpell for years, I just had to switch to Speckie.

The main reason is that ieSpell is 32-bit only, and apparently isn't supported anymore so no chance of a 64-bit version. Whereas, Speckie is both 32-bit and 64-bit.

And after using Speckie for a short while now, I kind-of like it even better than ieSpell.

Although I can see the spell check icon in Windows Live, it is dimmed and not active. How can I make it active? I thought I picked it under Mail Options, but it doesn't seem to make any difference.
