Spell check
« on: October 05, 2009, 01:50:41 PM »
Koratfart may i propose you that you install a spell check as no doubt persons from other forums have attacked my grammar and spelling it would help me in any future court cases.

Easier than installing a spell checker on the server that would also delay posting time is for example installing the Google Toolbar on your browser and enable 'spell check' on the "tools" menu, if your operating system isn't already equipped with a spell check. Then you only need to enable that.  ;)

On my Outlook Express new message page the spell checker is grey and inactive. I can't find a way to activate it. Any clues, please?

Sorry, I'm using Outlook 2007. Couldn't help you with Outlook Express, that is from the stone age.

My spellchecker seems to be integrated in the OS I'm running. I never bothered enabling. It was always there. But as I said there is also one in the Google toolbar.

But why don't you open "Help and Support" from your OS and query "spell checker"?

The Google spell checker doesn't work in Outlook Express.

If I don't have the Google toolbar I can simply download and install it. It's free!

OS stands for Operating System like Windows XP or Vista etc. If you open Help and Support and enter "spell check" as query it probably tells you how to enable it. When I run it on Vista the first answer I get is "1. Check spelling in a Windows Mail message". 

If you're running Windows XP it tells you in Help and Support probably about how to enable spell checking in Outlook Express.

Your forum posts should be checked for correct spelling by your browser. I use Firefox; it does have a spell checker as well. As far as I know it is enabled by default. Maybe you need to install another dictionary still, if you need another language than English.

A bit of research told me that I can't have a spell checker on Outlook Express because OE uses the one in Ms Office and I don't use that. As I wrote previously, the Google checker won't work with OE. so, it's back to Thunderbird for emails and all is well.

FranklySpellingBee, take no notice of Korat Fart. I think he's trying to mislead you. 'OS', as you probably already know, stands for Ordnance Survey or Old Soak.  ;)

Buying a CD or DVD with a copy of MS Office at one of the several stores in Korat or getting one from a friend might be another alternative.  ;)

A DVD with a huge assortment of copied and cracked software goes for about 300 Baht. If they're not cracked already instructions or tools for doing so are usually contained. I usually buy one from time to time to find out, what's new on the software market.

How about using your own computer for surfing and posting? Or are the broads in the internet cafe so attractive that you can't do without seeing them? That also lets me conclude what might be behind your spelling: you keep looking too much at them instead at what you're typing and posting. They are the spell and you must be the spell checker then. Correct? ;) :D

I use Open Office. It's open source software by Sun and very good. You can save docs. in their own format or several others, including MS Word. Check it out - you get updates too!

Though this still does not solve our dilema, of you being the first Admin to have his very own spellcheck on his forum ;D ;D

Being a Johnny Foreigner I would get blamed for "asking too much from the native speakers".  :-[

The Anglo-Saxons brought it along to keep most of the British from having to speak any of those Celtic languages like Scottish, Welsh, Gaelic etc. And here's a secret to never reveal to the wrong people: English is a germanic language! Ssh! ;)
