Proofing: Spell Check in PowerPoint

For presentations that contain slides with too much text, or even little text, there are always chances of spelling mistakes showing up! However, you don’t necessarily have to search for these mistakes by skimming all your slides one by one since PowerPoint lets you do a spell check of the entire presentation, and make corrections as well. However there are some caveats associated with spell checking, and this does not have anything to do with PowerPoint.

Proofing: Spell Check Options in PowerPoint

Has it ever happened that you know that a particular word is misspelled, but PowerPoint’s spell check doesn’t seem to think so! That may be because your word may be in all CAPS, or it may contain some numbers. In these cases, and in several other instances, PowerPoint just ignores any misspellings. Fortunately, you can turn off the options that instruct PowerPoint to ignore these misspellings. Remember though that changing these options will apply to all Microsoft Office 2016 applications you have installed on your computer including Word, Excel, and Outlook.
