Have you installed the new spell checker add-in yet?

  • Comments 5

Mikhail Arkhipov on our team recently developed a spell checker add-in to Visual Studio 2005 that allows you to spell check the contents of your ASP.NET or HTML page in HTML view.  You need to have Office 2003 installed on your machine in order for this feature to work. 

See http://blogs.msdn.com/mikhailarkhipov/archive/2006/04/17/577471.aspx for details including install location.

Try it out today and let us know what you think.

  • I've attempted to install this, but I haven't gotten it to work yet.
  • I've installed it!! Seems to pick a lot of html out though which is annoying but thats to be expected :)

    Nifty little tool!!
  • Please refer to http://blogs.msdn.com/mikhailarkhipov/archive/2006/04/18/578529.aspx for troubleshooting. You must be an admin to install the add-in as it requires COM registration.

    I'd like to see what checkir picks in HTML incorrectly. You can send me more info to mikhaila-at-microsoft-dot-com.

  • Sure hope this becomes part of VS. I've asked for a spell checker since VB6. I hate showing a client a change and having them immediately point out a spelling error.

    My 'dream' spell checker would check code and HTML. It would also be able to check multiple pages at once, or better yet, highlighted the errors as I typed (MS Word Style).
  • Very cool, thanks for the tool.

    Many forget that spelling is just as important since us programmers tend to worry about code only, and forget to present yourself well to others by using correct grammar to begin with! ;)
