The Spell Check Tool
I love to ewes my Spell Check Tool
To help me do it write,
When I right for periodicals
Or for my web sight.
No matter when or wear,
It ax through my poem’s sells.
I use it two pear words correctly
So I won’t Miss Spell.
Accept for the computer
(So bettor and nice),
No ones ice check it.
I just except it’s advise.
Its great to live
With these fax of technology.
I don’t half to worry about spelling.
I use it and make know apology.

Computer spell checking is great, but good old proofreading is better. Go through the content and check if you’ve selected the correct words. Then, take the text and read it backwards so you can concentrate on the spelling of individual words without thinking too much about the content.
My journalism teacher, Miss Spell, always used to say, “Even thought great care is taken, their might still be sum misnakes because no one is prefect.” 🙂
