Outlook on the web relies on the spellcheck capability of your browser. In this video, learn how to assess your browser's spellcheck functionality and check spelling while composing messages.
- [Instructor] It's a good practice to make sure the documents that we send to others have correct spelling and grammar, and that applies no less to email messages that we send. There is no spell check built into Outlook on the web and no grammar check. The spell check relies on the capability of the browser you're using and some of the browser's capabilities will be based in turn on whatever version of operating system you're using. There are combinations of older browsers and operating systems that do not have instant spell check. But it's easy to tell if you have it. Simply make a mistake. If you do and there's a red squiggly underline, ah, spell check has kicked in. And if I right-click, there are a few things I can do with this word. I can choose a correct word from those offered, I can add this wrongly spelled word to my dictionary, I wouldn't do that for a wrongly spelled word, but I always have to add my name to dictionaries, you could search the web for this word in case you think it's right, you can cut, copy, and paste. And Inspect really has nothing to do with Outlook on the web, so we'll leave that alone. I'm going to fix this misspelling and fix this misspelling. Now, there's no grammar check here either, because this browser doesn't include it. So the sentence, "I is capable of this," that I have here, is grammatically horrific, however, it's technically correct from a spelling point of view, everyone of those five words is spelled correctly. If you need a grammar checker, you'll have to add one to your browser and it will be useful to you then, not just with Outlook on the web but with other web applications you use. One grammar check that is free for many browsers is Grammarly. And Grammarly then will interact with Outlook on the web in much the same way that a traditional grammar check will. So make sure you're either checking your grammar or have a tool to help you with that and also make sure that you know if you are responsible for checking your spelling on the fly or if your browser will be doing that for you. When my message is all done and I have appropriately added my recipients, a subject, checked my spelling, proofed my grammar, at this point, I am then ready to send my message. And just like that I'm done.
