I am just curious, how many folks use spell check, and what is your source for using spell check?

  • Native browser spell check?
  • Copy paste your content to another source then copy paste it back to your topic?

 

Thank you for your feedback.

John---just a thought--- I've noticed that a lot of the misspelling comes from those that use TAPTALK.

 

I'm assuming that sometimes it gets to you & others--me included.

 

But while we're somewhat on the subject a grammar checker would also be nice.

 

combined it might alleviate the need for extended time to correct content.

Grammarly is what I use. But---just recently it looks like a different spell checker kicked in when I switched to Opera. It looks like what was coming up several months age but it disappeared on its own. It doesn't do grammar however.

 

The best one that I found was to go back and read EXACTLY what you wrote, not what you THINK you wrote.!.!

C/P'ing back and forth doesn't always work because of dissimilar editors... makes for extra work sometimes...

this is what my document writer does for spell check...

Native built into Chrome. Agree with Stick about the visibility of the underline

Does anyone know of a setting in the browser spell checkers that can change the color? Mine always shows up red underlined.

Thank you for your feedback guys.

There has been enough interest over the years that I am researching some developed features for our editor that would perform spell checking here in our community, and folks would not have to rely on the browser checkers.

The software I am looking into actually performs spell checks, and additionally grammar checks, and supplies a Thesaurus dialogue for those who are interested. The software is intuitive, and is activated by the user by simply clicking on an icon in the editor bar tools, a dialogue appears and gives you options for correcting your text.

 

This is in the baby steps, but I am aware of the need, and desire by our members. Thank you all for your feedback once again.

For both spelling and grammar I use the information pounded into my brain by my grade 6 teacher. And unless I'm in a big hurry, I then read my post BEFORE posting to ensure that my finger actually hit the keys I THOUGHT it hit!

Thank you, Mrs. Wood! They don't make teachers like you any more. :(

I'm lazy. I just hope that my spelling is right. In my school days, "over a half century ago", I was pretty decent with my spelling.

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
