So, I send emails everyday through our webmail service at school… which is basically an online version of Outlook. I have the preferences set to spell check each email before it is sent. The amusing part is that the list of words that are ‘spelled’ wrong are those that just are not recognized by the dictionary. Words that are either spelled wrong or unknown: blog, wiki, RSS, mashup, Google, etc. The list goes on. Each and everyday I misspell words that I want to catch, but I also see these words and more sorted out as ‘unknown’ by the ONLINE EMAIL dictionary. Does anyone else find that absolutely bizarre? In a place where we need to start recognizing the potential of Web 2.0 tools, it is quite a contradiction to see that the easily updated online dictionary can’t seem to recognize those tools.
