    How do I turn on spell check?

    A little script comes up that says: Javascriptvoid('Spell Check')

    Thanks


    I'm sorry, my responses are limited. You must ask the right question.

    "From observations upon living glaciers, and from the known nature of ice, we may learn to recognize the track of a glacier as readily and unmistakably as we would the familiar foot-prints of an animal." G. F. Wright 1891 (108-109)

    As it works fine for me,that eliminates certain causes of this.so the answer maybe your browser has scripts disabled,or you need a update .or you are using a proxy server (try another one to eliminate that possibility)
    try updating your browser first..hope this helps

    Well that helps, its not systemic to the site. It works for me on other sites. I'll try ie.spell.com and see if that fixes it.

    It is a possibility that this site uses a newer script version than the other sites that work ok for you.just a thought.hopefully admin can help in solving this.btw, i use the chrome browser.
    On a funny side,perhaps its just enabled,by tsf site, for me as my spelling is very bad

    In all fairness jlhredshift, there's no excuse for IE9. Get another browser. Chrome and Firefox are free to download.

    But still, we don't want to prevent IE9 users from spell checking, do we?

    Spell checking is no substitute for knowing how to spell...

    Spelling checkers are nevertheless very useful. Some people, even otherwise extremely intelligent can't spell well (there's almost zero correlation between spelling ability and general intelligence) and there are many English as a 2nd language here who struggle with English. It should be available.

    I'm having quite some difficulties with grammar and spelling myself. Having spell check would make it a lot quicker and easier to write replies: I wouldn't have to reread everything I write


    Besides, people can learn from having their writing checked for spelling mistakes. Especially is English is not your native language.
