Active Rain Hint-Spell Check It Works For Comments Too

By
Real Estate Agent with Integrity Real Estate Group

Now granted spell check in any form isn't perfect.  It can't tell you if it should be there instead of their or whether red means red or read (past tense) however it can big up a good deal of mistakes.

Sometimes when I read through comments it reminds me of the time I thought I'd help my husband out by typing up one of his college term papers for him.  All seemed fine until the next morning when we realized that I perhaps might have had one beer to many and my fingers were off one key on the typewriter.   Notice I said typewriter before there was a spell check.  Opps.

So before you post your comment hit the little ABC check button at the top of the comment box.  We know Google does pick up comments (except members only)  and they are part of the total image you are projecting to the world.  Just a little hint from someone who knows what it's like to have a fat finger moment or two.

Cindy, thanks for pointing something out that "should" be obvious, but for whatever reason, my eyes never really noticed before! I usually catch any typos after I click on "Submit Comment" so I'm glad that AR has an edit button...but using the spell check would be better! :)

How one presents himself/herself is extremely important. Spell checking before posting is important. Thanks.

Susan-when we hit the ABC Check botton on AR it will underline our words.  It just isn't automatic.

Brad-we all are at times.  It just takes a couple of seconds to check for the common misspellings.

Chris-I've started to make it a habit to check my spelling as my fingers and I don't seem to be on the same page sometimes.

Frank and Karen-Guilty!  The problem seems to be that spell check doesn't work on titles.  If I write it in word first I'm okay but when I just do a draft in AR then I'll get caught with my misspellings on.

Suzzane-indeed but we do need to be aware of the impression even our comments might make.

Jeff-a contract is the difference between a paycheck or not...wait a blog post might be the difference between a new lead or not.  Guess we should check the spelling on both :-)

Lori-I one the 8th grade spelling bee but that was a LONG time ago.  Typos are a fact of life.  We get the chance to at least try and catch them with spell check.

Leilani-I suspect it happens to all of us.  I know it does for me.  I read and reread a post, hit the submit button AND then seen the typos.  DUH!

Sometimes my brain and my fingers are not in the same room or at least on the same keyboard.

Cindy, thank you for the reminder. My issue is more switching from keyboard to iphone to ipad. Lots of letters get in the way of what I think I am writing. Thanks to you... I may just get over these bad spelling tendencies!

I've seen some horrific typos in the comment section on blogs............I usually use the little ABC icon and when I've forgotten, gone back and edited my comment if I see a typo after it's posted.
