Spell Check While you Type

Spellcheck Dialog

The Aurora Spellcheck dialog appears if you type a word that is not in the current dictionary file. The dialog shows you the word and a number of suggestions and allows you to make any desired changes.

Note: If the Aurora Spellcheck dialog is onscreen in one application, Aurora Spellcheck is disabled in all other applications until the dialog is closed. So if you get a spelling error in one application, take care of correcting it before you go to a different application.

Tip: When the spelling dialog opens, the word in the dictionary that is most likely the word you meant will be entered here. If it is the correct word, just hit Enter and it will go into your document.

The top line of the dialog box contains the context of the word you are correcting. For spell checking as you type, this will just be the misspelled word. For spell checking the clipboard, this will be the part of the sentence after the misspelled word.

Below the context is a text entry box that is where you can enter a correction for the misspelled word.

Below the text entry box, the left side contains a list of suggestions for what the correct word might be. You may double-click on any of the words in this list to move them into the correction text entry box. To see more words, click on the scroll bar to the right of that window (if present.) The words in this list are ordered with the most likely word at the top of the list.

More Suggestions

If the word you are looking for is not in the suggestion list and you have the spell checker set to not give you every possible suggestion right at the start, the More Suggestions button will cause the spellchecker to look further for the correct word. This button will go gray when it has no more suggestions to make.

Replace

The Replace button will put the text in the correction text entry box into the document you are working on, or into the clipboard. The word in the correction text entry box will be added to the Aurora Prediction dictionary.

Was Spelled Right

The Was Spelled Right button will make Aurora Prediction assume the word you typed is correct and add it to the dictionary.

Autocorrect

The Autocorrect button will put the text in the correction text entry box into the document you are working on, or into the clipboard. The word in the correction text entry box will be added to the Aurora Prediction dictionary as an autocorrection so you never have to correct this mistake again.

Say

The Say button will make Aurora Prediction speak the word in the correction text entry box. If you click the Say button a second time, it will spell the word for you. You can click on any of the words in the suggestion list to have them read to you.

Mark

The Mark button will make Aurora Prediction surround the misspelled word with curly brackets {} in the document you are working on, or in the clipboard. The word will not be added to the Aurora Prediction dictionary.

Ignore

The Ignore button will make Aurora Prediction ignore the word in the correction text entry box, and will not add it to the dictionary. This is useful if the word is an unusual or made up one and you just want to get back to your work without making any changes or adding the word to the dictionary.

Alarm Sound

If the Alarm Sound checkbox is checked, Aurora Prediction will make a sound when the Aurora Spellcheck dialog appears.
