Is your spelling getting worse?


I prided myself as a kid on my excellent spelling. As the years go by it's getting constantly worse. I think it's the fault of Spell Checker, a blessed little program but one that makes us rely on it. Are you having the same experience?

    Thanks Lisa. I don't use speed dial for the same reason. Spell checker has taken over part of my brain.

    That used to be the same with me. I read constantly and my spelling gets worse.

    I have no such excuse - At the ripe young age of 66 my spelling is just getting lousy. By the way - Hve you considered a larger screen?

    So you have experienced similar problems. They should at least put in UK alternative spellings which are acceptable.

    Jan, you're doing the right thing. I wish I had read your comment years ago. Now I'm a spell checker junkie.

    Thanks for the comment my friend. We both labour on! Spell check didn't like what I just said.

    Thanks Lois. My fingers used to find the right keys effortlessly, but now a little voice in my head says "don't worry, spell checker will catch the mistakes."
