Would fewer errors be made in Hubpages questions if a spelling and grammer checker was installed?
Would the quality of questions asked on Hubpages be better if a Spelling and Grammer checker was installed in the questions section of one's domain? Some of my questions have unintentional glaring errors.
I doubt it as it would constantly be calling up stuff that doesn't comply with the spelling and form it would be set with, probably US, or international English, which in essence is not a lot diferent to US.
That would be grammar I believe you can edit a question before it has any replies.
Yes I think a spelling and grammar checker would be very helpful.
There already is a spell-checker when writing Hubs, but you have to highlight either a group of words, sentences, paragraphs or single-words to do so. It doesn't do it automatically. Also, there's a language checker which lets you choose either British English, or US English.
You can use Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome, which spell-checks as you type and leaves the red squiggly lines underneath to show mistakes. Though a grammar checker is needed.
I think a spelling and grammar checker would be very beneficial especially for the Hubbers whose first language is not English. I work a bit differently. As I write I think along so I first write my article or poem in Microsoft Word and then put on the spelling and grammar checker. Whichever way it's done everyone has their own system and sometimes I even correct things right on the Hub and can put in a mistake or two.
Yes, I think that spelling and Grammar errors on Hubpages would go down with a spell checker. Of course, when it comes to some things it won't help. I misspelled a TV character name, and it would not have been caught. I use Chrome, and an extension called After the Deadline, and it lets me spell check my comments.

Yes, I am a new "hubber." I am also a new writer. It has only been a few months since discovering I really enjoy writing on HubPages. My problem is, since I started writing on HubPages I have been a bit, let's just say, OCD when it comes to my spelling and grammar. Before I hit the...

I think HubPages is just a terrific opportunity for writers to write and make connections within the HubPages community. However, I am concerned about the quality of some of the hubs I see. Even if the writing is fresh and lively, if the spelling, punctuation, or grammar are poor, then...

Just wondered if there was any point in having a spelling and grammar checker within hubpages?I raise this question because I see a lot of spelling and grammar mistakes while reading through hubs. It spoils an excellent piece of work. If people wrote their piece in word, first or...

Is it rude to point out grammar/spelling mistakes on hubs via comments?I've come across numerous hubs that have grammar and spelling errors, some minor and some littered with mistakes. Otherwise, these hubs would be interesting and will written in my opinion. Is it rude to point out these mistakes...

Do you think it's polite to point out to a fellow hubber that they have misspelled a word or name?
