Currently there is no spell check function built into IndustrySafe. However, the Internet Explorer 10, Internet Explorer 11, Google Chrome, Mozilla FireFox, and Safari browsers contain built-in spell check tools.

For more information on how you can use your browser’s spell check tools to check your spelling within IndustrySafe, please review the sections below.

Using Internet Explorer’s Spell Checker

To check the spelling of a word you have entered into a text box while using the IE10 or IE11 browsers, highlight the word that you would like to check, right-click on the text, and select the Check Spelling option.

If you are using a version of Internet Explorer that is older than IE10, a spell check tool is not included as a standard feature of your browser. However, several third parties offer tool bars and plugins for older versions of Internet Explorer that provide this functionality.  The Google tool bar is one example that works well for this, but in order to generate reports in IndustrySafe, the toolbar’s popup blocker will need to be turned off.

Using Chrome’s Spell Checker

To enable spell check, navigate to Customize and control > Options > Under the Hood > Change font and language settings > Languages. Select the Check spelling option. Click OK.

Right-click to view more options, including selecting one of Chrome’s suggested spellings, or adding a word to Chrome’s dictionary. If none of the suggested spellings are appropriate, you may manually edit the word.

Using FireFox’s Spell Checker

To check the spelling of a word, highlight the word that you would like to check, right-click on the text, and select the Check Spelling option.

If you have entered more than one line of text into a text box, Firefox will automatically perform a spell check by comparing your text with the words in FireFox’s installed dictionary. If the word is not found in the dictionary, it will be underlined in red.

To correct misspelled words, simply right-click on them and select one of the suggested spellings at the top of the menu. If none of the suggested spellings are appropriate, you may manually edit the word.

Using Safari’s Spell Checker

To enable Safari’s spell check tool, click Settings and select Show Menu Bar. In the Safari menu bar, navigate to Edit > Spelling and Grammar > Check Spelling While Typing.

CTRL+ right-click to view more options, including selecting one of Safari’s suggested spellings, or adding a word to Safari’s dictionary. If none of the suggested spellings are appropriate, you may manually edit the word.
