Editors' Review

+

Spelling checkers keep those of us who never won a spelling bee from looking like high-school dropouts. IESpell's spelling checker for Microsoft Internet Explorer provides a safety net for interactive message boards and Web-based e-mail.

We found it unobtrusive, convenient, accurate, and fast. When you want to check your spelling, activate the program from the Tools menu, the toolbar button, or the right-click menu. The intuitive interface resembles that of any other spelling checker, with options for adding words to its dictionary and for ignoring URLs and e-mail addresses. It also provides a direct link to the online Merriam-Webster dictionary, giving you the opportunity to expand your vocabulary as you work.

Though we wish IESpell could have fixed punctuation errors and checked our spelling as we typed, we were happy it detected all our misspelled words and offered spelling suggestions. This is a great free tool for the orthographically challenged.

"Too bad more people don't use this..."

January 13, 2010  |  By jlafond38

 |  Version: ieSpell 2.5.1 build 106

Pros

I downloaded this useful add-on over a year ago and cannot imagine living without it. It works consistently, allows you too add to your dictionary and is very easy to use.

Cons

I wish it would find the misspelled words as they are typed because sometimes, I cannot figured out where the word is that is being referenced. Sometimes plural words come up as misspelled and then need to be added into the dictionary.

"Awesome, Excellent Software to have in the browser."

January 03, 2010  |  By secondson2002

 |  Version: ieSpell 2.5.1 build 106

Pros

IeSpell Software has always been the best spelling helper software going back to Windows 95, when I first started using it

Cons

The only "Cons" I see is that this software don't work when using Notepad.

Summary

I love being able to right click on any writing program on or off the Web and IeSpell is right there to check the entire writing area with just a few clicks of the mouse. And it looks up words using Merriam -Webster, Wikipedia, Dictionary.com, Cambridge Advanced Learner?s Dictionary and Yahoo! Education Dictionary those are great options to have and use and you choose which one to have it use to define. I enjoy that I can have it open in the same place but of my choosing. IeSpell just keep getting better and better and so is my spell (LOL).

"I cannot get it to work"

December 02, 2009  |  By StephenLamson

I think I wasted my money. The program doesn't work and I have been using the Dotster Sitebuilder program.

Cons

Confusing and not reliable

Again, I think I was not prudent buying this product and no one has contacted me for support.

"Good working if you can install features"

November 30, 2009  |  By CorV8tor

 |  Version: ieSpell 2.5.1 build 106

Pros

It's great. It spell corrects vbvery well. It is better than me carrying my dictionary every where

Cons

I have a head injury and ther for don't know how to set it up for other spelling checks on other programs. It isn't apperant to me??

Summary

All in all I feel it is a good spell checker. If it had an automatic reconiser system in it so that one could click on the set up button(if there were one??) so that it could automaticaly set it self up to spell correct other programs. As I have a bad head injury if it's not automatic, and these days ther is no reason wahy it couldn't, so that it would make it the ultimate spell checker!!!!
