Spell Checker

We are clamoring for a spell checking utility. If teachers are concerned about this utility, we should be able to turn it on or off.

    Most operation systems and web browser has a built in spell checker. You can see this when e.g. writing a new bulletin post (if it’s not turned off on your computer). However, we cannot use a spell checking in a good way in the rich text editor partly because the plug-ins demands the right click functionality that the spell checkers also use...There are however browsers/operation systems (Chrome on iOS I think) that mange to apply their spell checker in the rich text editor, but this is not a part of itslearning as such.

    The spell check in Chrome, Safari nor Edge work in the RTE fields of Its Learning. We have over 500 student with this accommodation in their IEPs

    Hi, we’re about to pilot a spell-checker in the RTE. Development is still at an early stage so I can say how the final version will look like or if it will be rolled out as a standard feature. I’ll get back to you when I know more. I’ve attached a screenshot, please note that this is work in progress.

    Spell check is a basic text support tool for universal design.  All students benefit... especially the students that are at risk, english language learners and students with disabilities. Teachers should have the option to turn on or off for assessments and assignments.  Please consider this as universal design.  It's very important.  This box that I am currently accessing allows even our native spell check.  This would be a great!

    This box I'm tying into now has a rich text editor and allows native spell check, but it's not available in ItsLearning itself!?! Seems strange this wouldn't be a standard in ItsLearning.

    Other programs with RTE's have spell checkers. It is often cited as one of the lacking features in itslearning.

    This is the most requested enhancement at our school.
