All I have to do to get spell check here is right click while I am in the text box. When I right click, down at the bottom there is an option, "spell check this field" and I click on that and then I have spell check. Try it out...I hope it works for you too!

Thanks for that info. I need it also and thought I had looked everywhere but it works as you say.
While on such a subject I have another question. With no spell check I usually write my text as a document, spell check, and copy and paste. I do that with other situations. I have done that twice on this board and it posts with some extra symbols like < > and such.
The spell check just worked on this!!!

I think you also have to change the settings in your internet browser. I use Firefox and I had to go into it first and add the spellcheck before the right click worked. Every browser is a little different and that is why things work a little differently or look a little differently on the board for us.

I'm not sure that all browsers are equal. I use the newest version of Firefox now, and discovered by accident that it has a spell check incorporated in it. I was typing a message here, and I found a few spelling errors were underlined in red. When I right clicked on the underlined word it brought up a "dictionary" of options for the word, or to add the word to the dictionary, if you know the word is correct. This happens particularly with medical terms or meds.
I used to use Netscape browser, and that didn't have a spell check.
If you have Firefox here is how you find the spell check to turn it on if it is not already:
At the top of a browser page click on the "Tools" menu. Then scroll down to "Options". In the window which opens go to the "Advanced" tab at the top. Then click on the "General" tab and you will see under "Browsing" half way down the page a box beside "Check my spelling as I type". Tick this box if it is not already ticked, click OK at the bottom, and you should have spell check enabled.

Heidi and Sherrill... thanks to both of you also. I have Firefox too, but never gave it a thought that there was something I had to do to get it. Prior to Firefox, I had spellcheck, but wondered why I had "lost it" !
Anyway, I'll check it out!
