Spell Check

Post by Lasa » Thu Jul 04, 2019 8:50 pm

Is there a way to have WWB check spelling on a page, not just the current txt box.
Just asking since it seems to do everything else..lol

When do I press F7?
while in WWB, or during preview, once uploaded?
I tried all and nothing happen.

The spell checker works in Windows 8 and newer only. Windows 7 does not have a built-in spell checker.

Sorry I don't understand the link...
Would it help if i installed the Spell Checker (DEPRECATED) extension?
I'm a horrible speller and need all the help in the world...any ideas?
Cheers,
Lasa

ps: I do not have Microsoft office I use Office Libre.

Sorry, the spell checker extension no longer works.
This extension was licensed from another company but they do no longer maintained and it is not compatibility with modern programming tools.
That is why we switched to the native Windows spellchecker. This requires Windows 8 or newer.

A bit tedious but you could copy/paste the text from WB into Office Libre do the spell check then back into WB. Or the best workaround.... upgrade to Windows 10.

I have an old 2007 or 2013 Office... that might still have 1 of 3 allowed installations available, maybe.
Never bothered after my pc died and MS moved to renting Office, I simply switched to Office Libre. If I install this old Microsoft office would WWB access the installed Office Spellcheck? or am I barking up the wrong tree.
Cheers,
Lasa

Don't leave the upgrade too long. Support for Win 7 is fast disappearing. I've never regretted going to Win 10 despite all the negativity around it, and with an old computer. Still going strong.
As far as I'm aware the free upgrade is still available either using your Win 7 code or through the Microsoft Accessibility Centre.
