Any recomended Spell Checker that works in IE9?
did you try Speckie?
No... i'll check it right now, thanks.
Works in fine in Google search, but do nothing here in Wilders...
I Have never tried it, so it is a suggestion rather than recommendation.
Edit: UK variant of English Language is far, far superior lol j/k Totally impartial opinion of course!
Just re-started the browser and its already working!
Spell Checker for IE9
+1 for Speckie
which combines different Dictionaries, too.
Seems that i spoke too soon, in my standard user account, Speckie only works in Google search and i´m not able to access the program configurations...
I've been using Speckie on IE 9 as it is the only spellchecker that works on 64 bit. It can behave a bit oddly in some text boxes & it pays to persevere with it a little. If you hit the space bar two or three times after typing an incorrectly spelled word into a search box you should see the wavy red line eventually.
For instance; composing an email in Hotmail it doesn't seem to work at first, yet after typing two or three words deliberately incorrectly, I discovered that once you right-click on a suspect word it will put a wavy red line underneath them & you will get the context menu with the selection of alternative spellings. After that it just checks as you type & the wavy line will appear as normal with a misspelled word. I have also discovered that double-clicking (highlighting) a word will often convince it to start working. To be honest, even with Speckie's slightly jittery behaviour when first employed, I still prefer it to ieSpell.
This issue on their forum with user accounts & admin privileges may have something to do with your problem. However I have installed the freeware edition on a computer with multiple accounts for a relative, albeit from an admin account, & it works. It does also tend to behave the same as on both of my own computers though in the manner that I have stated above.
Correction: neither Speckie nor IESpell works in a standard user account.
What i was seeing in Google search was only the google spell checker.
It seems to exist a way to use Speckie in a SUA, but for that the MSI packages are needed and i can't find those!
edit: already send them a e-mail, waiting for reply
That's interesting. I have installed ieSpell & then later Speckie on a computer with multiple accounts as an administrator & they could be used on all accounts. Did you run the original installer in an admin account as administrator?
but i will try again, this time rigth-click and "run as admin"
The same problem is described here:
edit: i've tried to "run as admin" in admin account, but still not working.
OK, I can't think why it's not working. Maybe try disabling the UAC then running the installer, then re-enabling the UAC? That's all I can think of at the moment, sorry.
try installing in the user account.
i could not configure Mouse Gestures (an extension for IE) in the 'limited' admin account if it was installed with UAC off.
i had to intall it with UAC on as well.
you have to show the Menu bar in IE.
the config option for Speckie is in one of the menu, can't recall which one exactly...
It might be an idea to see if it is enabled in 'manage add-ons'.
lol, yeah, it might be worth checking out. hahaha!
Problem finally solved!
I had to disable the SRP and the automatic deny option for UAC, and install the Speckie directly in the standard user account!
After that i re-enabled the SRP and the automatic deny, and everything is working fine!
thank you all for helping
Well ... ya never know with IE!
Great, I'm glad you've sussed it all out.
The UAC often has something to do with things like this. I remember trying all sorts of things trying to add Fanboy's adblocking list to SRWare Iron's internal adblocker. Eventually I discovered that switching the UAC off allowed me to save the file. I could then turn it back on again.
I like Speckie, despite its foibles. I installed it on the computer of an elderly relatives's the other day for her. She thinks it's brilliant & can spell properly now in emails! She never quite figured out how to use ieSpell LOL.
I had never heard of this before. Thanks, now I can finally get rid of the outdated IE7Pro I have been using.
ieSpell works well. I changed the variant to Canadian from American as I did not realize until you posted that changing was even an option.
Does ieSpell support other languages?
Is it only for the Canadian, UK & US English?
that's what it says on their website.
Speckie supports 30-40 different languages.
I know about Spekie, because I'm using it.
It is about ieSpell I want to know, please.
