Spell Check

Spell check utilizes the OU Campus global dictionary, as well as the custom site/account dictionaries to spell check a page. You can run Spell Check from the Page Check or JustEdit toolbar.  

It is recommended to click on the spell check icon in the JustEdit toolbar while you are editing a content region.

Spell check is also available when using the WYSIWYG editor. Spell check can be toggled on and off by a user and provides an on-screen indication of misspelled words in the region that is being edited.

This is the recommended way to check spelling.

  1. Click the Spell Check icon from the JustEdit Toolbar.

  4. When errors are encountered, the Spelling button highlights red and displays the number of errors underneath the button.

The Spell Check results can be opened in a new window to make it easier to find words.
