How to spell check your slides in Zoho Show | User guide

Spell check a presentation


Spelling errors can happen in even the most well-written documents. We all know the embarrassment of presenting a slideshow only to, too late, catch some error as it projects on the big screen. To help avoid such instances, Zoho Show provides a thorough  Spell Check feature. This feature is set to ON by default, and checks everything that you write against a built-in dictionary, which can check more than 80 languages. As you write, the spell checker will underline suspected mistakes with  red-dotted lines . You can also use this tool to review the entire to document at any time and go through the errors one-by-one. 

To correct spelling as you type

Right-click on the word underlined with red-dots. A dropdown menu will appear with the following options:
  • Choose the word you want to use from the list of suggested
    words. This will replace the misspelled word with the new suggestion.
  • Click Ignore to ignore the currently underlined word. Although the spellchecker will ignore this instance, it will continue to underline it if it repeats anywhere else in the document.
  • Select Ignore All to ignore the underlined word throughout the presentation. 
  • Select Check
    Now and choose Ignore to ignore the underlined word or Change to change the current word in the slide. Alternatively, you can also choose Ignore All or Change All to check the ignore or change the current word in the  entire presentation in one session instead of correcting the spelling one by one while creating a presentation.
  • Click Add to Dictionary when you know that the original word is spelled  correctly and you plan to continue using it with the current spelling. The word will be added to your personal dictionary and will no longer appear as a spelling mistake in future projects.

Spell Check in Different Languages.

If your presentation contains text in more than one language, then you can use the appropriate dictionaries to spell check these languages. This will change the default language and set the dictionary to the specific language you want. Zoho Show identifies and spell checks 87 different languages.
 
To spell check another language,
  1. Select the REVIEW mode in the right pane and choose Tools. 

    Review tab

  2. Choose the desired language from language dropdown. This will sync the program's custom dictionary with the selected language to spell check the document. 

    Language options

    The spell checker is automatically enabled to check for spelling errors in the preferred language. 

  3. Fix the error using the steps under the topic  Spell Check Your Presentation 

    Only the document owner has the right to change the preferred language. The language option is invisible to the shared users. 


Create Your Personal Dictionary

When you are creating a presentation on a topic that contains specific project terminologies, you might find that a few words appear as misspelled even though they are correct. This is because they are not found in the program's dictionary of the language. In such instances, you can create your own  Personal Dictionary to include a set of words of your choice and avoid your project terminologies being shown as incorrect. 

To add and remove a word from your dictionary,
  1. Select the REVIEW mode in the right pane and choose Tools. 

  2. Select Personal Dictionary.  The Personal Dictionary dialogue box will open.   

    Personal dictionary .

  3. Set the document language in the Language box. 

    Language drop-down

  4. Start adding words to your dictionary as follows: 
  • To add a word, enter the new word into the  Add New Word  text box and click the plus  button.
  • To remove a word, select the word that you wish to remove rom the  Custom Word List and click the minus  button.   

    Add new word

       

Turn Spell Check On or Off

Sometimes a document will be so full of jargon or other specialized language that it isn't practical or prudent to continually add or ignore every unrecognized word. During these times, you may wish to turn off the spell check feature.
 
To spell check on or off,
  1. Select the mode REVIEW in the right pane, choose Tools and then enable/disable the Show spelling errors button.
