Default Spell Check

Is it posible to have a spell check funtion added to the board. It would sure help people like me who have a hard time finding our own spellling mistakes.

Iím such an awful (not to be confused with awe-full) speller, I find myself using MS Word to compose any posts to catch spelling and then do a cut and paste. A spell checker would definitely be very nice.

I thought of using Word and spell/grammar checking each message but it would be too much hassle. I built-in spell checker would be great.

We used to have it at one point, but it's difficult to do because of the lack of an available database to use to run the spell checker against. The one we were using went away. I keep checking now and then to see if one becomes available and if one does, we'll install it.
Thanks

George Patton couldnít spell either, and they made a movie about him! If you ever want a good laugh, read some of his early (unedited) letters and other correspondence. Itís a HOOT! Nobody can argue that Patton wasnít a bright guy, so I say to heck with the spell checkeróitís the content that counts! (BTW, I drafted this on MS Word so you wouldnít think that I donít know how to spell!)

... Sister Mary Elizabeth has got to be sitting somewhere at Happy Acres rolling her eyes. My knuckles still hurt from misspellings.

The rset can be a total mses and you can sitll raed it wouthit porbelm. Tihs is bcuseae the huamn mnid deos not raed ervey lteter by istlef, but the wrod as a wlohe.

I used a free spellchecker at: http://www.spellcheck.net/ and got the following results.

According to a rscheearch at Cmabrigde Uinervtisy, it doesn't matter in what order the letter in a word are, the only iprmoetnt thing is that the first and last letter be at the right place. The rest can be a total mses and you can still read it without problem. This is because the human mind does not read every letter by itself, but the word as a wlohe.

Not the best by far but possibly usable. You need to open it in another window, copy/paste your text and click on spellcheck text. As you can see, it did not correct all of the words but it did detect every incorrectly spelled word. It's interesting, but how practical would it be to use?

P.S. There are other interesting links from the spellchecker page such as a units converter.

Chris,

Have you looked at the bulliten board spell checker @ SpellChecker.net http://www.spellchecker.net/ ? Looks like it might work for us. Could you cover the cost of installation from the sponsor donations?

I may have found another solution that I like. We'll give it a try and see how it goes. It has interface instructions for this board type.
