at the mercy of spell check

Do you find yourself at the mercy of your spell checker. I do rely on this and often have to still use a best guess when presented with the choice of the word I wish to use. What I really need is one more step, if I could only click on the word to get a definition and then click one more time to replace the mess I've already written. Anyone else want this tool?

Yes, we need a meaning check for things like that. Spell check certainly does not catch it when we spell the wrong word but it is a correct spelling. I need a typo check, I guess. I frequently type quickly and type 'that' when I mean 'than'.

That tool would be so useful. I heard someone else on mylot say that do the "their" instead of the "there" (or they're lol) that you wanted. It's so annoying and hard to catch. It may account for as much as 25 percent of all of my typos. lol

The spell checker come very handy to me especially when I write my discussion directly to the screen and there is no longer the need to draft it on papers. The spell checker alert me when my spelling is wrong but like you said it lacks definition but that can easily be solved by double checking the meaning in the net. Everything is easily accessible now through the net.
