spell check is good but has major disadavantages

We all think spell check is a gift from God because people dont have to think about spelling when they are typing a document but you are all wrong. Spell check was actually attended for the people who have a disability with learning difficulty in organizing information received, remembering them, and expressing information. Spell check helps them in that area. I was watching a documentary on how people have forgetten to spell simple words or they dont even know the difference between there and their.
I think todlers can spell better than adults. People who use spell check say that it doesnt make the person sound stupid when the presenting a document. Wrong, you are stupid.

  • Okay, well firstly, I think you need a spell checker. Lets read what you wrote, the spelling of people is ppl, you is u, and are is r. Also grammar wasn't that brilliant either, for instance when you wrote :
    "Spell check was actually attended for the ppl " I think attended was meant to be intended. Also toddlers has two 'd''s not one, and the final comment is quite funny

    " People who use spell check say that it doesnt make the person sound stupid when the presenting a document. Wrong, u r stupid."

    Just think, if our blog had a spell checker (and you used it) we wouldn't have had the comedy of you telling everyone that they are stupid because they need a spell checker.

  • After writing my last post, I just realised that blogger doesn't have a spell checker, maybe they could think of introducing one, or making one more easily accessable.

  • If you are writing a letter by hand or even an essay, do you not use a dictionary??? That would be the same as using a spell checker. Also to check spelling, grammar and punctuation you would read the literature twice over to ensure that you had not made any mistakes. Spell checker is useful in this instance as the person using it would save time.

    By the way I used spell checker on this.

  • The online spelling and grammar check is become quite important for the students. They can use it for both mobile and computer.
