Spell Check

Kahua has spell check functionality in both the desktop host and the webhost. Spelling errors will appear underlined with a squiggly red line. To review spelling suggestions, right-click on the underlined word or phrase.

There is a slight variation in the functionality between the desktop host and the webhost, consistent with the variations present between Microsoft desktop applications and web browsers:

  • In the desktop host, a space or punctuation mark must be entered for the spelling to be checked. 
  • In the webhost, a space is not required. Spelling will be checked as you type.

In both hosts, text that is copied and pasted is automatically checked when it is pasted into a field.

To add words to the spell check dictionary on your computer, follow these directions from Microsoft:
