Check Language 1.5
by Jamal Mazrui
When an Edit or RichEdit box has focus (e.g., Notepad, Wordpad, or a dialog control),
press F7, Shift-F7, or Control-F7 for a spelling, thesaurus, or grammar check using components
of Microsoft Word. If some text is selected, it is used for the check.
Otherwise, all text is used for a spelling or grammar check,
and the current word is used for a thesaurus check.
Note the following limitations in this version.
The first check is significantly slower as Word components ar initialized.
Sometimes, the Word dialog does not become the active window, so Alt-Tab is necessary.
Sometimes, the Word application does not remain hidden as intended.
This global script requires Microsoft Word, as well as GW Toolkit.Download Now

the script does not release the Word object when WE or the script is shutdown. In fact, it keeps Word constantly open in the background from the first time you use it, running but invisible.
I just tried this script by pressing f7 in a Notepad document to initiate a spelling check. Unfortunately, in its current form, the script is not at all useful. Although f7 does bring up the Word 2003 spelling check dialogue, the resulting dialogue box is almost completely useless. I can read the edit field containing the error. Sometimes, I can read the suggestions field, though the focus does not track among the available options when the arrow keys are pressed. I am unable to tab to the various buttons, such as Add or Ignore, although their shortcut keys usually work. This script also slightly reformatted my HTML code by removing my hard line breaks, which I definitely was not expecting. I am hoping that Jamal will be able to circleback around to this script to increase its overall usefulness. Please keep up the great effort!
In spite of perhaps a few
idiosyncrasies%u2019 as noted in the introduction such as sometimes having to backtab to get to the suggestion box etc., this is a huge plus since i tend to jump to notepad a lot and have never had a spell check there possible.
I can only say "thank you."
