I know many of you don't like (or trust) downloaded add-ons, but the new IESpell was highly touted on Tech TV last week. You might give it a try. It is available at Spammer.


The spell check can be used here - just right click on your message, a drop-down will indicate "check spelling".
I find it quite useful.

Your friend,

Now that's a Handy Bit of Information!

I wish I had used the site's Search box sooner, would have saved my dysfunctional typing fingers a lot of work & editing after the post submission.

I am just one of the 'sometimes slowly' :)

PhpBB3 already has built-in spell check functionality.
A grammar checker might be helpful though. I've seen an abundance of incorrect use of articles and pronouns.
Makes me wonder how many bogus aliases have been manufactured by the same individual. Anonymity is a wonderful thing but it's gets a bit ridiculous at times. :D

Thanks, Marc...

Unfortunately, I didn't know that, so I was reviewing and editing constantly.

The block that shows on a 'right click' does give one the option to check for Grammar.

And I don't know about 'alias's'... Maybe Multiple Personalities with separate log-ins? (PM sent)

Thanks

As an English major this at first wasn't easy for me to accept, but after living various parts of northern Europe over the years, I've begun to view the language English as Galactica, with influences from so many international sources that niceties of grammar aren't all that important. Russian, for example, doesn't use articles, and Estonian has an interesting take on pronouns that I've yet to comprehend. I call it International English. It occurs in printed form all around me all the time -- "incorrect" English that is used and understood nevertheless.
