It's an extension with a good potential, but seems that the development stopped in the middle:
- it's very slow
- it complains that "doesn't" should be corrected. It corrects just "doesn" to "doesn't", which results in "doesn't't".

The first primary difference I found was that it needs to be run explicitly on a document instead of always checking as another extension does. This might be preferable, it may be a nice option too.

The first deal breaking annoyance I found is that it doesn't recognize Asp.NET MVC Razor syntax as being code, and marks these code blocks as misspellings.

One especially nice feature is that it does list all the misspellings in the (i)Info message window which other exensions that I've tried do not do.

Looks like good software, just needs a little more work. I've disabled for now, but looking forward to future releases.

It's very nice and simple tool for spell checking.It checks c# code file and html page words which has been commented.It's pretty quick also.Good job.Keep it up.

Initially I thought that VS2010 froze and I killed its process.
I let it run again for 5 minutes and eventually it finished, but it's slow like molasses.

    • I am about to move computer and would love to migrate the dictionary I have added to?
      regards, Paul
    • Found it:
      "Most extensions are per-user extensions, and are installed in the %LocalAppData%\Microsoft\VisualStudio\<Visual Studio version>\Extensions\ folder"

    • With the above settings I successfully installed the spell checker but nothing happens. 
      With a test htm file I select Spell Checker and do not see any errors.

      Your Comments and feedback greatly appreciated. 
  • Doesn't spellcheck in the Design view
    1 Posts | Last post November 29, 2012
    • It would be useful if it did.
  • It needs to ignore certain types of tokens
    1 Posts | Last post November 29, 2012
    • ${someVariable} should not be checked for spelling errors.
  • Does this not work with Office 2013 (64-bit)?

    • Nothing seems to happen when I select Spell Checker from the tools menu.
      Also what do I do with the Macro that you list in the documentation, do I need to add that to get the add-in to work?
  • File extension
    1 Posts | Last post July 25, 2012
    • Hi, this is a nice add-in! But can you support further file extensions? Currently, I need a spell checker for .c files. Unfortunately, the spell checker only supports .cpp files. Configuration of supported file extensions would be a great feature for me.
      Thanks, Ralf
  • No "Add to Dictionary" option if no suggestions?
    1 Posts | Last post March 14, 2012
    • There should be an option to add the word to the custom dictionary even if no suggestions found.  Example would be a person's name.  user probably does not want the spell checker to flag it every time.
  • Simple syntax checking for XML doc
    2 Posts | Last post August 19, 2011
    • This is a nice tool. 
      A feature that I really would like to see is some simple syntax checking for XML doc. We use SandCastle to build API doc from inline documentation. The problems we see in the API doc are: incomplete sentences, inconsistent use of puncuations(missing ending period) etc. If this tool can do some syntax/grammar checking, it would be very helpful in improving documentation quality.
    • You can use StyleCop for that
