Spell Check

Is it possible to have a spell check on this forum? Honestly, I like to type rapidly, thus leading to several typographical and spelling errors. It would be much more convinient to simply a an installed Spell Check so we do not have to go through our posts again just for the otential spelling errors.

Re: Spell Check

Typically web browser's come with their own spell checker, but they aren't the best either.  I know that's what I use, because I'm also a fast typer thus make a lot of smaller spelling errors as well...

Yes, Firefox's spell check seems to work for me.

Hi Shivamcoder3013;

It is working for me too.


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.
All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof.

Re: Spell Check

It might depend on your browser.

Re: Spell Check

I do notice that it misses some words. For instance, "gt" gets by quite easily.

Re: Spell Check

I use firefox as well, and everything seems to work fine for me.  It could have to do with other things on your computer (bug, glitch, software installed unnoticeable incorrect, malware, slight incompatibility, hardware issue like your hard drive, etc.).  I see one of 2 options that might help, either reinstalling the browser, or testing to see if it works with another one (I would probably test another one first).  However, it isn't that big of an issue, and there might be no way to fix it without doing something more drastic and/or very involved.  If either of those 2 options don't work, I'd have to think if there is anything...simple that can be done.  Oh wait, perhaps check you settings to see if you changed anything (sorry for noting at the last minute)?

On the other hand, I thought I remember you mentioning somewhere that this issue has already been fixed...but I can't seem to find where you mentioned it.
