In the past few days, I’ve received several emails regarding a Yahoo Mail spell checker problem. Users seem to be troubled with the non-functional nature of the feature and have been looking desperately for solutions. Here are some of the complaints:
“My spell check doesn’t work anymore. In my emails, misspelled words are highlighted in red and a drop down menu gives suggestions, but I can’t make the corrections anymore. And I can’t directly change the misspelled word as long as it is underlined in red. I have to send the email to myself to get rid of the red underlining and then manually change each incorrect word myself before sending.”
“In the past when I click on one of the auto-suggested words, it automatically replaces the mis-spelled word in the email. But not of late. Now I have to manually correct the word which is very time consuming.”
“Yahoo Mail spell checker has a problem and is not working on my emails. When I click on the “Spelling” icon, I get disconnected from the messenger and the feature does not work. There are no corrections being made.”
“I can’t use Yahoo Mail spell checker properly after composing my e-mail. I click on the icon, the wrong words are highlighted with red underline. When choosing the correct word I still get the wrong one with the red line.”
“My Yahoo account have been developing a problem day after day of not checking / correcting spelling mistakes.
