Re: NVDA and spell checking in Notepad++

George Kerscher

Hi Rick, Yep, I have been with DAISY since 1997!


David, the document formatting is not working in Notepad++. The spell checking is working, but a bit slow to activate I hit Alt+p, down arrow to spell check, enter then , f for find next, enter, and I am taken to the next spelling error. Then activate the context menu and the suggestions are there.


Casey, I have the Windows spelling option enabled. Settings, device, typing, and the options seem to be enabled. However, in Notepad++ I do not see any effect.






It would be nice if there was a hot key for a dialogue that would walk through the document to each error. If there

Are you by any chance the George who fathered much of DAISY? If so, this is Rick Ely, who in the golden past was a project director at NCAM. If not that George, welcome to NVDA.

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.
