  1. Hi, is there a word checker program available for download?

    I remembered in the past there's this program that can check whatever u type. Either in ms word,ms powerpoint or maybe other editor. There's no need to activate it at all. It's like after installing, it's always there already. It's more of a plugin rather than a program.

    I've tried to search around but still couldn't find. Have you guys came across this product?

    Please clarify- are you looking for a 'spell checker' or a word count checker?

    Bobbye, I'm looking for a spell checker, something like what Fastco has provided me with.

    Fastco, thanks for the infos. By the way, I've browsed thru the webpages. Most of them are for firefox. Is there any plugins for microsoft office? like say, word and powerpoint?

    I did think it was the spell check, just wanted to be sure.

    The Google Toolbar has a spell checker. And here's another checker:

    These two will check spelling on board such as this. I think, but an not completely sure, that the Office Spell Check will work on Outlook Express and in Office documents.

    Here's more info on that:
