Hello Steve:
This problem is not restricted to Chrome. I have had this happen to me while using FireFox and Internet Explorer several times but, I must admit, not for two or three years.

It's not JAWS saying misspelled, it's Chrome. Turn off automatic spell-checking. I don't know where that's done because I'm not a Chrome user, but it's in settings or options somewhere.

Hi List,

While posting on Facebook yesterday, I got annoyed by JAWS saying ‘misspelled’ for every single word, so that I could not check my text before posting it. Of course, the reason was that my text was in Albanian, not in English, but I wonder if I can set JAWS not to say ‘misspelled’?

I am using latest JAWS, in this case with Google Chrome.

Best wishes,
