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?

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

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

    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?

    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."
