Both WordPress‘ blog editor and Microsoft Word have built-in spell checkers. Some people don’t bother to use them to the detriment of their readers. I refuse to read articles that are not spell checked. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if someone invented a utility that could be included in all word processors that checked for the truth of what was being written? Word processing would be done while attached to the web and faster computer processors would allow for real-time fact checking. No document could be saved or articles posted on web sites that had not been truth checked. It would certainly be a relief for those of us concerned with the truth, and it would put some sites out of business.
