    Hi, we'll need a bit more info. As RescueTechLA asked above, we need to know what OS you're using. Also, what part of OpenOffice are you in? The word processor ( Writer)...spreadsheet ( Calc)...presentation ( Impress)?

    Finally, do you see red squiggly lines under misspelled words? If so, what happens when you right-click on one of those?

    Get back with any answers and I'd be glad to help...

What happens when you press F7? It may that you have turned the automatic feature off - which displays the squiggly line...

Or you need to install the dictionary?

Spell-check has been around for years; however, it just keeps getting better! Microsoft Office 2007 Spell-check is even more intuitive and easy-to-use. You'll find Spell-check by clicking on the Review Tab located on the Ribbon, and then select Spelling and Grammar from the Proofing Group. If you don't use Spell-check very often, you may have trouble remembering which Tab to click on (I know that I do).

As a trainer, I've learned that each individual works differently. That's why I like to present different methods of performing the same task, especially if it can save time and help a student work more efficiently.

I personally think it's much easier to simply press the F7 key to initiate Spell-check. That's because I favor keyboard shortcuts. Some students prefer to create customize toolbars with their favorite features. In Word 2007, you can't customize the Ribbon, however you can customize the Quick Access Toolbar:

1. Start MS Word 2007

2. Go to the Customize Quick Access Toolbar button
(It's located at the top left of the screen and it looks like a small arrow with a bar on top of it.)

3. Select Spelling & Grammar from the list.

4. You should see a Spelling & Grammar button appear on the Quick Access Toolbar.

5. The next time you want to use SpellCheck, just click on the new button you created.
Both of these shortcuts will save you time to help you work more efficiently!

Happy Computing!

Try updating the drivers in your computer. You can use RadarSync to automate the driver update so that you don't need to look for the drivers manually.

Fixyu spell checker not working.

I know Firefox has a built-in spellchecker. I don't know which version of IE has that feature... if you're using IE make sure you've updated to the newest version. If that doesn't work I would just install Firefox.

The spell checker and spell check as you type does not work.
I use this when I need to doublecheck my spelling
cut/paste your document into the spellchecker; and then paste the correction back into your document
