Tom’s Tuesday Tech Tip: Screen Captures in Windows Made Easy

Tom’s Tuesday Tech Tip: Take Back Control of Your Spell Check Function

As we rely more on software programs doing our spelling for us, we can actually create spelling errors that we don’t notice, but your attorney-clients might. One of the issues with any word processing application is that once you accidentally mark a misspelled word as correct, that’s how the software spells the word until you do something about it. For example, you create your legal nurse consulting report for one of your attorney-clients and you misspell pleurisy as pleuricy. When you’re spell-checking the document you figure Word just doesn’t know any medical terms, and since you do, you click Add to Dictionary.
