If you use firefox spellchecking is automatic.

I'm sure 99% of the people here use spell check so much they wouldn't know if you spelled a word wrong anyway.
Heak my spell check went crazy after typing just that one sentence...
Thank you firefox! :laugh:

At the risk of inciting panic, the old spellcheck utility was not part of our forum software, but was an outside utility that poses a security issue for the site. We are looking for a new utility, but in the meantime simply ask for your patience and that you use your own best judgment in spelling out all the hard werds.

I use Spell Catcher by Rainmaker software. It is pretty wild.
They have a 15 day free trial.
It has always worked well, except for a short while when they brought out a new version of Windows Internet Explorer and then did an automatic update. But in two days there was a new version of Spell Catcher.
Everything had worked, except that for two days I could not automatically spell check in the search boxes in Internet explorer.
This is a demo of it working on my machine.
This is how I use Spell Catcher. I Have been using it for a millennium. I have been very happy with it so far.
