Re: NVDA and spell checking in Notepad++


Hi George. I’ve played around with Notepad++ but not with that plugin.

You could try the built-in typing spell checker in windows if you haven’t already. It works in a similar way to how autocorrect  suggestions work on smartphones. The nice thing about it is that it works everywhere, and you can navigate suggestions with the left/right arrow keys.

Subject: [nvda] NVDA and spell checking in Notepad++

Hello NVDA folks,


My first post as I convert from JFW.


I have installed the DSpellChecker plugin in Notepad++. My son confirms words that are misspelled are underlined, but I do not know how to get NVDA to alert me to the misspelled/underlined word.


Help welcome.
