Checking Spelling


PowerPoint's spelling checker checks the spelling of the entire presentation, including all slides, outlines, notes pages, and handout pages. To help you identify misspelled words or words that PowerPoint's built-in dictionary does not recognize, PowerPoint underlines them with a wavy red line. You can correct misspelled words in your presentation two different ways. You can use the Spelling button on the Standard toolbar to check the entire presentation using the Spelling dialog box, or when you encounter a wavy red line under a word, you can right-click the word and choose the correct spelling from the list on the shortcut menu.

Check Spelling


Click the Spelling button on the Standard toolbar.


If the Spelling dialog box opens, click Ignore if the word is spelled correctly, or click the correct spelling, and then click Change.


PowerPoint will prompt you when the spelling check is complete, or you can click Close to end the spelling check.
