Hi Everyone,

Check this out as it is the Dog' doo dah's in SpellCheckers for use when posting to forums, etc.

ieSpell is a free Internet Explorer browser extension that spell checks text input boxes on a webpage. It should come in particularly handy for users who do a lot of web-based text entry (e.g. web mails, forums, blogs, diaries). Even if your web application already includes spell checking functionality, you might still want to install this utility because it is definitely much faster than a server-side solution. Plus you get to store and use your personal word list across all your applications, instead of maintaining separate ones on each application.

The program installs as a new button in the IE toolbar (as well as a new menu item under "Tools") - after filling in a form, just hit the ieSpell button and it pops up a dialogue, similar to the MS Word spell check.
It also works in AOL by right-clicking over the text you have written before posting and then selecting 'Check Spelling'

ieSpell is not spyware or adware. Its free for personal and not-for-profit use and can be downloaded from here:

Once downloaded, close your browser and re-open it for the application to be included.
The default dictionary is 'US English' , this can be changed to 'UK English' in the ieSpell Options

Regards, Dave
