Add Real Time Spell Check to IE9

Missing real-time spell check is one of the main drawbacks of Internet Explorer. It misses even in the latest version of IE9. This essential feature is available on all other popular browsers such as Chrome, Firefox, Opera, and Safari. However, you can add this feature to your IE with a small tool called Speckie.

Speckie adds real-spell check to all versions of internet Explorer. It is very simple to use and no configuration is needed after installation.

Download (1.2Mb) and install Speckie. If you are using Internet Explorer 9, you may need to enable it from the Add-on manager.


  1. This is a nice utility.

    There's also tinySpell...

    ...even the freeware version of which is more than adequate. Plus, tinySpell works not only in IE, but in every single program or application you use. It spell-checks, then, even in Notepad.
