tinySpell - a spellchecker for any windows application

You may come across many situations where you want to check spelling while you type. If the application you are typing doesn't have a spellchecker attached to it tiny spell becomes handy. This utility saves me when I use notepad or notepad++ for making notes and prepare write-ups. tinySpell is a small utility that allows you to easily and quickly check and correct the spelling in any Windows application including Microsoft word which are having spell checkers in built.
tinySpell can watch your typing on the fly and alert you whenever it detects a misspelled word by popping up misspelled word as a small yellow colored text. It can also check the spelling of text that you copy to the clipboard. tinySpell installs itself in the system tray for easy access. It comes with an American-English dictionary containing more than 110,000 words
When a misspelled word is detected, click the tinySpell icon or press the hot-key to pop up a list of suggested replacement words. If the misspelled word is detected during on-the-fly checking or after a word is copied to the clipboard you can select a correction from the list. The selected word is inserted into your document, or is copied to the clipboard. When a spelling error is shown you can press left shift to list the suggestions and easily replace the misspelled text.
