Can I spell check my counseling session notes in Neoserra?

Safari, Chrome and Firefox all support native spell checking. Unfortunately, Microsoft Internet Explorer does not. But don't dispair, The Google Toolbar package offers spell checking within the Internet Explorer browser.

Download Google Toolbar

SpellCheck is available for Internet Explorer 6.0 or greater. Following are the steps to dowload Google Toolbar. (Note: Google will close all open Web pages during the download procedure, including this FAQ file, so you may want to print these instructions or copy and paste them to a different appplication before starting the download procedure).

  1. Go to
  2. From this page, click the Install Google Toolbar button.
  3. At the following screen, deselect any of the additional configuration options that you may not want.
  4. Click Accept & Install.
  5. Once installation is finished, you will see the toolbar present at the top of your browser window.

You'll notice that the Google Toolbar comes with several other features in addition to SpellCheck. Some of these features you may find helpful, but there is one that you should disable, as described next.

Disabling Google's AutoFill Features

The AutoFill feature lets you automatically fill out Web forms based on a personal profile that you create. While this feature is very helpful for online shopping, it's counter-intuitive in Neoserra where you are always entering in new contact and address information, not reusing the same information over and over. To disable AutoFill, click the Options icon on your new Google Toolbar and deselect the AutoFill feature.

Using SpellCheck

To use SpellCheck in Neoserra, open any record in add or edit mode and click the Spell icon from the Google Toolbar. SpellCheck searches all free-form text fields (not drop-down menu fields) for spelling errors. The misspelled words are highlighted in red.

Clicking on a spelling error provides a drop-down menu of suggested spellings and options. One of these options is "Add to dictionary" which lets you permanently add words such as city names to your local dictionary.

It's that easy!

Note: By default, the Google SpellCheck ignores words that are in all capitals and words that contain digits. You can turn off either of these two default settings or enable a third setting that ignores unknown words appearing many times from the toolbar's Options icon.
