A while ago someone gave out the name of a free
downloadable spell check program that would work with
Fish Profiles so that "we" (me, especially) could click
on a message such as this and allow us to check our spelling.
With the demise of my previous computer, I've lost that
software and would like to download it and add it to my
new Windows 7 machine.

Anyone know what it was, or has one that will work here?
Tnx
Frank

Frank,
Try running firefox, it has a spell check built in. I'm pretty sure chrome does as well, though I havent run fp in chrome even though it does seem faster for some pages I like the way firefox does bookmarks better.

Adam and I both use firefox so it's what all our sites get the most testing in.

Getting old mate.

I use Google it can be added in into their tool bar.

Via "Get More Buttons"

Hi Guys,
Thanks for the comments. The Spell Checking program that
I used to use on FP and on my Notebook Text responses
was one I downloaded from here on FP. FP did not sponsor
it but one of our members suggested it to several of us
that are spelling challenged. Once downloaded and installed
all I had to do was leave the cursor at the top of the
"Box" right click it and "Check Spelling" was one of the
options.

I'm not a fan of having several tool bars up on the page
so I've kind of negated those two choices.

Oh.. Keith... I resemble that remark!

Frank,
Firefox isn't a separate toolbar it just highlights under words it's not sure on and lets you know, then you just right click and correct.

Don't remember the spell check that was suggested though sorry

Hi Guys,
Thanks Keithgh, I'm not sure that a spell checker
from Down Under would be the right thing for us Yanks.
However, your list did give me a lead for another
program that I have downloaded and am using now.
Thanks so much folks!
Frank
