Speckie
A free real-time spell checker for IE

Speckie is an easy-to-use and very helpful real-time spell checker for Internet Explorer.

The program works in any regular web page text box. Just start typing, and if you mis-spell a word and you should see a red line immediately appear beneath it, Word-style. Right-click the highlighted error for a list of possible alternatives, choose the one you need, and Speckie will replace the original text accordingly.

This seems like it would always be useful to us, but if you want to turn off spell checking temporarily for some reason, then just right-clicking the text box and clearing the "Check spelling" option will make it happen.

And another right-click option, Dictionaries, lets you replace the default US English dictionary with a number of downloadable alternatives: British and Australian English, Dutch, French, German, Italian, Spanish and more (the Speckie site has the full list).

The program also has a few configuration options available (click Tools > Speckie Options). You may want to select "Enable spell check in single line edit fields", for instance, as this is turned off by default. And if you don't like the default wavy red line to highlight errors, then that's not a problem, you can quickly choose a different tag style and colour here.

Speckie 6.5 changes:

- Added the spell check assistant (can be enabled/disabled in the Speckie Settings).
- Right clicking on a tagged word now overrides the default context menu on IE v6 - 9.
- Added a JavaScript API to enable/disable the Speckie context menu.*
- Fixed an issue with the context menu 'No Spelling Suggestions' item.
- Fixed an issue with the Full EXE installer when installing custom dictionaries.*

Verdict:

An easy way to highlight and fix spelling mistakes, just as soon as they happen

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
