(Note that the settings available in this image may differ from available settings in your tests.)
The spell checker can be activated for individual learners from the candidate list in Deliver, or from Monitor when the test is activated.
The spell checker can be enabled and disabled by the learner, and there are two types of spell check available.
Spell check as you type (SCAYT) - this will underline misspelled words as the learner writes them and will offer an inline correction by right clicking on the underlined words. This should be a familiar type of spell check for most learners.
The learner enables it by choosing "Enable SCAYT" in the menu.
SCAYT language can be configured from the menu by choosing Language.
Spell check dialog - this is a separate dialog that the learner starts by choosing "Check Spelling" in the menu. The dialog will then run through the whole text. This is a useful option for those who find the underlining disturbing.
Spell check language is also configurable by the learner.
