The Much Maligned Spell Checker

Posted: 28 December, 2013 in Comment, Computer, Spell Checker

The Spell Checker has been much maligned by lot of people under the pretext that they make people lazy in so much they do not have to spell as the computer does it for them so they never have to learn how spell again.

But what these people have missed and from personal experience the last thing a Spell Checker does is make people lazy or stop learning to spell but the opposite. If anything it teaches people how to spell as each time someone uses to spell check strangely learn how to spell the word they are correcting especially if they make same mistake a lot of times.

Strangely the much maligned Spell Checker ends up being both a useful tool when writing and teaching someone to spell in it’s own strange way.

In the end it is always better to look at something with an open mind as you see more than someone with a closed mind.
