Automatically spell check these the questions to the community like Google does.  Google provides alternative searches when you misspell a word in the search.  Would seem reasonable for Apple too.


This cam to my attention when I accidentally misspelled community in my prior post about Mac OS X Technologies.

    Another annoying thing is that when you manually click spell check while replying to a post, iPhone and iTunes and all other such products are marked as incorrect. Can't they just add the names of their own products to the dictionary?

    You can click on HTML icon.  You will get the 'normal' spell checker.  You will have to ignore the html stuff of course.

    If by the 'normal' spell checker you mean the one built into OS X, you can use it in the regular (non-html) editor modes. First, make sure it is turned on in the browser app's Edit menu > Spelling and Grammar > "Check Spelling While Typing" menu item. That will underline potential misspellings in red, just like for other apps that support system-wide text services.


    The trick is you can't access the OS X popup contextual menu with a right click on the underlined word because that brings up the ASC insert/align menu. But you can do it with a control click. This is because of a quirk of the software running the site, which is neither developed by Apple nor platform specific.
