I do not have a spell checker on this forum. Could you please tell me how do I get Spell Checker? I have Windows 7

I use Google Toolbar with IE9. That includes a spellchecker.

I use Speckie. You can get it from http://www.speckie.com/home/. It is free and works very well with IE9. I tried IESpell for a long time which worked in earlier iterations of IE, but not IE9.

Agree with TonyV. Make sure when you get a bad spelling then right click and select Speckie settings. That will open a new web page to download the 'English (United Kingdom)' dictionary. Make that the default.

I used Iespell for a long time but poor updating for the modern browser it fails miserably in my opinion - humble as it is.
