I knew a spellchecker has been in WordPress for sometime now and that was really very good news for people like me. But the other day’s announcement of a proofreader support in the HTML Editor set me out to a fun trip.
How good is it? Does it really know how to spell receive as against recieve? Or, seperate when we actually mean separate?
I did a quick listing including tech-based nouns and I could see that the proofreader can spell. It even recognizes words like blog, Twitter, and Google. But wait a minute. How come I am receiving an error for WordPress? Not in the database? Yes, it does recognize word press (two words) or word-press but not WordPress (one word).
Interesting, isn’t it? The spellchecker does not even recognize its master.
Here is a screenshot of my very brief word list:
So what do you think? Should we accept Word Press for WordPress? Or, do we have to teach the spellchecker to insert WordPress in its dictionary? // Leave a comment
