I was looking for an article or two about how we shouldn’t rely only on the Spell Check feature to proofread our letters, especially cover letters sent to employers. The first article made me laugh till I had tears in my eyes. The Spell Check will gloss over words that could be spelled different ways, it won’t catch the word “fore” if you meant “for”, it won’t catch “witch” when you meant “which”. It also will ignore words that are in complete CAPS. Anyway, here is the article. What made me laugh was the sample letter filled with things Spell Check missed.
Why You Should Not Rely on Spell Check to Catch Spelling Mistakes
How much do you depend on spell check? Even though it often flags names of people or places when they are spelled correctly, it comes in handy for making sure about the spelling of many words.
