Does Skype have spell check, and how do you enable that option? Thanks.

Re: Auto Spell Check

Look under File at the top left of your screen (to the right of Skype). Of course, Skype has to selected in order to see it... :happy:

Re: Auto Spell Check

The Mac OS X spelling check for Skype can be enabled if you open Skype, then click on Edit --> Spelling and Grammar and click on the corresponding options.

Re: Auto Spell Check

I am not pessimistic but just I would like to caution you on your 'enabling' the Auto-Spell Check in Lion. After typing one must carefully watch all the words because invariably the auto corrections turn to be unwanted, funny corrections! In case one decides not to use it, just go to the Language & Text System under Preferences and select the Text tab, turn off auto spell correct.

Re: Auto Spell Check

Not to be redundant, but when I open my Skype dashboard, I only see (from Left to Right) Skype - Contacts - Conversations - Call - View - Tools - Help.

 

Can you please clarify what you meant by...Of course, Skype has to be selected before you can see it?

 

Thanks!

Re: Auto Spell Check

The fact that your dashboard includes Tools makes me think you're using the Windows version fo Skype.  I suspect that if you were to pose your question in the Windows subforum rather than in the Mac group, you might have a better response.  That's not to say that there aren't 'ambidextrous' folks here who can help you, but there are more lurking in the Windows group.  :wink:

Re: Auto Spell Check

(from Left to Right) Skype - Contacts - Conversations - Call - View - Tools - Help is the windows version of Skype, I do not think Skype has spell checking
