How often do you stump spellcheck?

Do you have automatic spell check? I have it through firefox, but yahoo and google have it too (the toolbars or cursors). I'm very happy to have it! I used to be able to spell just about everything, but now, not always! also, sometimes when typing of course our letters get reversed.. guess one finger is faster than another! But sometimes my words are so messed up even spellcheck hasn't a clue! What about you? Do you have automatic spellcheck? Do you sometimes stump it?

Yes I sometimes get a word that the spell checker doesn't like. I have it on foxfire too. I like it because as you said I get some words backwards or just hit the wrong key. Without spell check I will have words like to be ot of df and will miss them when I reread what I have written. There are words that I spell by sound and they stump the spell checker.

If I have no idea how to spell a word (which seems to happen a lot these days) I like to type it out however it sounds and then let spellcheck figure it out! Usually it does! If not I have to try again.. Sometimes I get stubborn though and let a word stay misspelled just for the fun of it.

I also have an automatic spell check through Firefox and at time, yes it also gets stumped. I think my fingers do move faster than the other one sometimes. It's a problem I had to really overcome when I used to play in the trivia arena. I used to type fast but one mistake could cost you the point and your team the game! Anyway, I have gotten better at typing faster without making mistakes but I do still make mistakes from time to time that yes...even the poor spell checker has no idea what word I was trying to type. It's kinda funny now that i think about it.

I spell check myself. I do not use automatic spell check. I find it irritating to see little "worms" for words that I know is correct but it is not in the dictionary.
