Spellcheck Selected Text ..

4 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Ever wanted to do a quick spellcheck of any text in IE when posting a message or in your editor?

This script will use the MSWord Spell & grammar check function to check the selected text on the window.

Here's what you need to do:

- Download the http://www.autoitscript.com/fileman/users/jdeb/scriptlets/spellcheck.au3 into directory

- Compile it

- Make a shortcut on the Desktop and update its properties with SHORTCUT Ctrl+Alt+S

All you need to do now is select the text you are typing and hit the Ctrl+Alt+S keycombo. The script will minimize your window to avoid that you change it and start up Words spell checker where you are prompted for the updates.

When finished the window is restored and the updated text is paste.

What do you all think :whistle:

I think this is cool.

A while back I was looking for a spell check anything program, and found a few on the web, but didn't really like any of them. So I built one using AutoIt built around Aspell (GPL spell checker).

It's spell checking window is not as pretty as MS Word's (runs in a dos-type box), but it gets the job done.

The reasons I don't like MS Word's is

1) slower to load, especially on my older hardware

2) if you put in a hard return, it thinks the next word should be capitalized

3) not everyone has Word

Maybe I'll put mine up after I clean up the code. Yours is more polished than mine (like minimizing window, tray tips).

ETN,

How do you go about using Aspell? I downloaded the tar file which contains all kinds of source code. Basically I have a gui which I made from Autoit and it has a edit control which I want to spell check all the words in that edit control. How did you combine Autoit and Aspell? Any help would be awesome.

THanks
