Editors' Review

TinySpell is a free tool that checks spelling in any program. Accessing the program is as simple as right-clicking on its icon in your computer's Quick Launch tray. It displays a tiny window, making it easy to use alongside other programs. TinySpell will alert you if you misspell a word, or you can type a word directly in its window to check your spelling.

Most computer programs have spell check built-in, but in some programs the spell check is cumbersome to use or not easily accessed. TinySpell can bridge that gap. We thought it was quite handy to have the small TinySpell window running within easy sight and grasp. It can check passages of text copied and pasted onto new clipboards, which is another good feature. You can add words to its dictionary and you can set the program to beep whenever you misspell or mistype a word. TinySpell caught all of our spelling errors, and with most words, a window popped up with suggestions for the correct spelling. Only when we misspelled a word thoroughly was the program unable to provide us with an alternative.

TinySpell has a Help file that includes information about hot keys and how to use and configure the program. The program's Web site also has instructions for using the program. The program's default language is American English, but dictionaries in other languages are available for download on its Web site. We had no difficulty installing the application, but when uninstalling it, a 212KB folder was left in our program files. We weren't bothered by this--TinySpell is a program worth keeping.
