Moderated Re: Setting JAWS not to say misspelled

Never knew this and turned spell check off in Chrome. However, problem persists reported on below in initial portion of this thread. This only began with me a few Jaws updates ago. Any other suggestions for silencing this pesky annoyance?

That's right, it's not restricted to Chrome. All Web browsers have spell-checkers. That's one of the first things I do when I try a new one is to turn those annoying things off. Spell-checker, grammar-checker, they all go off. I was properly taught to spell and construct sentences in school. I neither need nor desire software to correct me. Actually, I'd much prefer to have a person do it than a piece of code, like my good pal Dave Durber, ha ha, who's been doing it for years, whether I need it or not! LOLLOL! You know I'm just having you on, Dave, or at least I *hope* you do.

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,
