You may wonder what happens behind the scenes when you run a spell check in PowerPoint or any other Microsoft Office program. This is what happens: PowerPoint looks at each word you have typed and matches those words with the entries listed in its dictionary. If it comes across any word that the dictionary does not contain, it goes ahead and marks that word as misspelled. Then it offers you suggestions for that supposedly misspelled word, so that you can replace that word with any other similar word found in its dictionary.
