Humanized Computing


For a long time now I have been looking for a spelling package that I could use from any program, even Visual Studio, I have a plugin for Code Rush this does a good job of checking strings, but really I need something that will allow me to check the spelling of an individual word, even if its a part of function name, many a time I have function names made up of two or more words camel cased, and someone has pointed out that its spelt incorrectly.

My latest tool of choice is ENSO Words there is a nice free trial that lasts 28 days, and its cost is very reasonable, it uses a magic key (the caps lock key) the user then taps out the start of a known command such as (spell check) and once the correct command is highlighted release the magic key, and the highlighted text is spell checked.

there is also a program launcher ENSO Launcher, which I am also trying out, although it does have stiff competition from Colibri which is the best program launcher I have found so far.
