Webpage Spell-Check Extension

QA can check spelling while testing functionality

Catching misspelled words can be tricky and not a fun job for QA to do. Sometimes it's easy to find a misspelled word when the misspelled word seems obvious - but more often than not you may not catch the words.

Thankfully there's an extension that will allow you to check for misspelled words on any website: Webpage Spell-Check by Syedgakbar.com

webpage Spell Check Chrome

Four Things that Makes This a Practical Tool

  1. You can instantly check the spelling on any page. Doesn't matter if the page is on a secure location or on your hard drive. Om
  2. You can enable this so that it's always on when your testing certain domains.
  3. You can edit the content on the page using the Control Key - that way you can test to make sure that correct spelled word doesn't break the design of the site.
  4. The application uses Google Chrome spell checker. As you add words to the dictionary in other applications, the word won't get flagged by Spell-Check as incorrect.

This is a pretty cool tool, and once you have it set up - you can ignore it until you suddenly see some words with the red lines under them.

This allows you to simply check off "Website Spell Check" as a value add service by your QA team.
