Spell Checker for Dynamics CRM 2011

One of the biggest complaints from clients has been that Dynamics CRM does not have a built in spell checker like other Microsoft applications. However, with the release of an Internet Explorer add-on called Speckie, you can now spell check fields and web emails in Dynamics CRM.   The add-on is free for personal use, but has a small fee for commercial use; please review the licensing agreement at http://www.speckie.com/license.

Once you have downloaded and installed Speckie.

  1. Open Internet Explorer
  2. Click on Tools
  3. Select Speckie Settings
  4. Check the box: “Enable spell check in single line edit fields”
  5. Click  “Apply” at the bottom of the page

Now you are ready to use Speckie with Dynamics CRM in an IE web browser.  Fields on forms and web emails will have the distinct red wavy line (this option can be changed in Speckie Settings) if Speckie believes a word is misspelled.  This can be a bit of a nuisance for names and places but can be a life saver for email correspondence or in notes/description sections.
