You No Longer Have To Rely On an External Spell Checker

IntelliSpell has its own spell-checking engine and does not rely on Microsoft Office spelling services. No longer do you have to have Microsoft Office installed or import/export documentation to solve this problem. You No Longer Have To Rely On an External Spell Checker

Complete XML and HTML Spell-checking in the Source Code

Help documentation, based upon XML documents, typically required an intermediate process of importing to a word processor for spell-checking. Then corrections were made back in the source code. IntelliSpell eliminates this tedious and error-prone process. Complete XML and HTML Spell-checking in the Source Code

Spell Correction is Easy with the Task List

All spell-checking data can easily be tracked within your application (wiggly underlines), or within the Task List (line item spelling mistakes). This makes it easy to run through corrections for an entire project. Simply double-click the spelling mistake in the Task List to open the Visual Studio file containing the spelling error; you do not have to search through pages of code to find spelling mistakes.
