Most Spell Checkers are Limited
Most word processing programs have spell checkers. But, most spell checkers can't correct medical, legal, scientific, or technical spelling errors. Thatâ€™s because they only have a general dictionary. It can spell check only ordinary English. That can be very frustrating when you need to check spelling on other types of terminology. What can you do?
Some people compile their own custom dictionaries. But that can take forever. You may need specialized spelling help now.
Thatâ€™s where we come in. Weâ€™re Inductel and we have been compiling custom spelling dictionaries, including medical, since 1985. Our custom dictionaries are comprehensive, accurate, up to date, and proven.
How Inductel Spellers Work
Microsoft Word is an excellent word processing program, but you may already know that its built-in dictionary isn't great for fixing medical spelling errors for example. That's because its coverage is limited. We've solved that problem by compiling an Inductel medical custom dictionary. We call it the Inductel Medical Spell Checker. We also have others including legal, scientific, and technical.
The Inductel Speller works within your Microsoft Office, or other word processing program
Itâ€™s fast, integrates seamlessly with your word processing program, and you can spell check ordinary English words and medical words at the same time. All Inductel Spellers work like that.
Inductel Has Several Types of Spellers
There may be uncounted numbers of disciplines each having there own special words. How can a word processing person be sure the reports and other documents they prepare are free of spelling errors. It's not easy.
Over the years, we have compiled custom dictionaries covering many disciplines including medicine, law, chemistry, biology, physics, electronics, computer science, and mechanical engineering.
Perhaps we can help you.
What is a custom dictionary? A custom dictionary is a list of words -not in the computer's main dictionary- that an author wants acknowledged by the spell checker as correct. Custom dictionaries are used by word processing programs, such as Microsoft Office Word, and other computer applications like PowerPoint, and Excel. Users may add words to or delete words from their custom dictionaries. Additions to this dictionary could include names, acronyms, new words, and other such entries. Users may compile their own custom dictionaries, or may acquire them from other sources. There are companies, such as Inductel, who compile custom dictionaries and make them available to businesses, organizations, schools, and the general public.
Inductel has been compiling custom dictionaries since 1985. In that time Inductel has assembled extensive medical, legal, scientific, technical, and general word lists from which it develops custom dictionaries.
