Speckie

SoftwareI have a very bad habit of trying to type way way too quickly on web forums etc. and I mistype or misspell a lot s a consequence of this, so previously I had been using the great ieSpell, but this does not allow real-time spell checking.

So I came across this free application called Speckie for Internet Explorer while looking over applications that had been mentioned on forums and websites, which does allow real-time spell checking so I thought I would give it a test.

On install the setup will download any applications you may need and it does need Visual Basic C++ by Microsoft, so don’t be alarmed if that also installs.

You can get a large set of dictionaries for your language HERE as various countries are supported.

An in usage its not bad, fairly quick to underline the spelling mistakes , which then you can right click to bring up a list of suggestions or you can add the word to your custom dictionary if you know the word is correct.

Only works in Internet Explorer but covers IE6,7,8,and 9. But don’t despair Firefox user as you do not need a spellchecker as it already has one built in which works good.
