Can't get a spell checker to work.

Post by cdysthe »


I need a spell checker for the editor. I have gone through the plugins but can't get any of them to work. I guess the ones based on Office won't work in Vista with Office 2007, will they? With the ispell based one I do not know how to get ispell installed, and where I need to install it.

Anyone here use a spell checker on Windows Vista that works well? I do not mind spending some more time getting it to work if I know it will work in the end.

Try the FarSpell plugin. I doubt that it was tested on Vista but it definietly doesn't need MSO.
Generally, you might wish to evaluate other plugins from the Spelling category.

gSpell should work without problems, but you need to install Office 97 dictionaries for it to work (you can find them on the internet).
