I am an affal, allful speller. I use my word processor to edet my message first, then paste it in to the message part of the form

I am an awful speller. I use my word processor to edit my message first, then paste it in to the message part of the form. (see it helped some but it did not catch the word "forum")

I can usually figure out what it was meant to be.

I do the same as Arlene. I use my word process most of the time.
I also look up a lot of words in the dictionary.

But if it isn't to hard a spell check program would be nice :)

Its a great idea, there is a MOD program for it, but it takes 2-3 hrs to install, so I haven't had time to do it. . . . I guess we'll just have to deal with misspellings in the meantime. :cry:

Yea, that is what I am now using! Firefox web browser is nice.

Although for longer posts, I still check them in Microsoft Word.

Firefox has saved me on a number of occasions. It's cool.

:idea: There is a free program that works specifically with Internet Explorer. This program can be used to spell check any text you type into any website.
There is no cost and this is not a try before you buy.

here is the link:

Well, thankfully i have Firefox to fix my spelling, because i am one of the worst spellers, i even managed to fail elementary school spelling, but i guess since its just elementary school, they just pass you anyway and don't worry about it!

I think that elementary school is where is important to learn the spelling and the same as grammar. It would be harder later in highest grade. It's like going to college without knowing how to read.

well... i do know how to spell better now (not perfect mind you), and i do have a tremendous vocabulary (people tell me that i use too big of words). My Dad has always been fixing my grammar as well, so i have turned out o.k. its just that i am not the best speller in the world

Wildernessfun, sorry I didn't mean you directly. I was talking more in general. Like, when I visited my friend, who used to be my high school teacher. She is teaching University now and she was showing me a test that she was planning to give to her students. I couldn't believe when I saw the test. I told her that the test that we took in High School were harder than that one. She told me that she has to go back to basic since they didn't know the grammar rules.

Yes, I know what you mean! I have read some of those types of papers before!!! I am, fortunately, very good at writing papers :)

Yeah, me too, and I'm so glad that God has blessed me in that way! I just hope that wasn't their final draft..

Sometimes... I think that we are really blessed in private school systems. My mom is a teacher in the public school system, in 5th grade. A lot of the kids that come to her have big problems in language arts and math... and just all across the board. We are very blessed!!!!

On the other hand, since most private schools don't have as many resources available they can't give kids the help they need when they are struggling (i.e. special classes), or the oppotunity to learn more if they are excelling (the differentiated classes). There are pros and cons to both, I suppose.

There sure are... I'm just glad that we have the opportunity to worship in our private schools!!... I had a teacher in Academy that had a sticker on her office window that says "As long as there are tests, there WILL be prayer in my classroom." I really like what that says. It shows that there are people who will do good for us no matter what.

Bonus points if anybody from CA can tell me what teacher that is...
