AOL Help: Check Spelling for AOL Email on the Web

AOL Email on the Web offers a spell check feature to verify the spelling in your email before you send it. The spell checker will highlight any words that need correction in yellow.

To check spelling:
1. Type your email message.
2. Click the Spelling button. Words that may be misspelled will be highlighted in yellow.

Note: Once the spell checker is active, you can click the Exit Spelling button at any time to end the spell check.

3. Click one of the words highlighted in yellow. A menu list of options will be displayed below the word.
4. Click one of the options on the list. The list will offer at least four options, listed below:

  • One or more word suggestions--Click one of the suggested words and that word will replace the word marked as misspelled.
  • Ignore this word--Clicking this option will remove the yellow highlight and leave the word as it is currently spelled.
  • Ignore all--Clicking this option will remove the yellow highlight and leave the word as it is currently spelled for every instance of the word throughout the email.
  • Exit Spelling--Exits the spell checker so you can continue editing your email normally.

5. Repeat steps 3-4 until all highlighted words are corrected or ignored.
