OpenWebMail Help Tutorials >> Using the Spell Checker

You compose a message within the main text box. Once you have finished your message, you may want to check it for spelling errors. However, doing this manually can be tedious. Fortunately, OpenWebMail has an extensive spell checker that can do it for you. Simply select the dictionary you wish to use (English, or American)*, and click "Spell Check". This will open a new window with the spell checker.

If the message text was:

This textt to spell check. Mak sure that everthing is correct.

You would get a spell check that looks the same or similar to the following:

spellcheck screen

The misspelled words in the message are the words that are in the drop menus. To correct the words, click the drop menu of the word you would like to fix. A list of suggested words will appear, as well as -- Manually Fix -- . You can choose one of the suggested words, if the word you were looking for is in the list, or choose -- Manually Fix -- , if the word is not in the list. If no suggested replacement is found or you choose -- Manually Fix -- and then clicks "Check Again", a text field will be available to input manually. If you choose -- Add to Dictionary -- and then click "Check Again", the original word will be added to your personal dictionary.

Once you are finished, click "Finish Checking". The window will close and the words you have corrected will automatically be changed.

The "Edit Personal Dictionary" button will let you delete words in your personal dictionary list. A new window will be opened. Choose the word(s) to delete and close the window when you're finished.
