    tiny spell checker

    Works in sys tray and uses very little resources. Works with many apps including Firebird.

    Occasionally you need to check the spelling of words in an application that does not include a spelling checker and you don't want to launch your word processor just for that. This is when tinySpell becomes handy. It is a small utility that allows you to easily and quickly check the spelling of words in any Windows application. tinySpell monitors your typing on the fly and alerts you whenever it detects a misspelled word. It also checks the spelling of every word you copy to the clipboard.

    Option 1:
    While you are typing, tinySpell monitors the text you enter and whenever it detects a misspelled word it beeps and the tinySpell icon in the system tray turns from white to yellow.

    Does this mean that it will work in TZ? It would be nice to have spell check capability in TZ.

    I think you have to be using Firebird. Not sure how it goes with Mozilla.

    Now we will all be gramatically correct.
    The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

    Owed to the Spelling Checker



    I have a spelling checker
    It came with my PC
    It plane lee marks four my revue
    Miss steaks aye can knot sea.

    Eye ran this poem threw it,
    Your sure reel glad two no.
    Its vary polished in it's weigh
    My checker tolled me sew.

    A checker is a bless sing,
    It freeze yew lodes of thyme.
    It helps me right awl stiles two reed,
    And aides me when aye rime.

    Each frays come posed up on my screen
    Eye trussed too bee a joule
    The checker pour o'er every word
    To cheque sum spelling rule.

    Be fore a veiling checkers
    Hour spelling mite decline,
    And if were lacks or have a laps,
    We wood be maid to wine.

    Butt now bee cause my spelling
    Is checked with such grate flare,
    Their are know faults with in my cite,
    Of non eye am a wear.

    Now spelling does knot phase me,
    It does knot bring a tier.
    My pay purrs awl due glad den
    With wrapped words fare as hear.

    To rite with care is quite a feet
    Of witch won should be proud.
    And wee mussed dew the best wee can,
    Sew flaws are knot aloud.

    Sow ewe can sea why aye dew prays
    Such soft ware four pea seas.
    And why I brake in two averse
    By righting want too pleas.

    tinySpell works well. Here's a slight bug in it...well not really a bug, but a weakness. If it is set to "check on the fly" and you enter a password into your browser (or anywhere really), that password is checked for spelling and since quite often passwords aren't words, then it will be flagged as an incorrectly spelt word!!

    The problem?? People can open tinySpell and see the last word checked which just might be your password!!! Caught me by surprise when I opened tinySpell only to see my password there in full glory!! (It looked really funny typed out because I only ever see it as ******) LOL
