Features and Benefits of Visual Studio Spell-Check
Specify file types to spell-check
The Options dialog box can now be used to specify the types of files that should be spell-checked. You can specify, for example, that files with extension "licx" should be checked as XML, and that files with extension "doc" should be checked as text.
Spell-check your entire Visual Studio project
Spell-check multiple files, your projects, or your entire solution. IntelliSpell provides an easy-to-use, one-click operation.
Spell-checking your Visual Studio application is even better with as-you-type spell-checking functionality. You can easily correct spelling errors in files (HTML, XML, resource, text) and code (comments, strings) as you type.

No more external spell checkers needed
IntelliSpell has its own spell-checking engine and does not rely on Microsoft Office spelling services. No longer do you have to have Microsoft Office installed or import/export documentation to solve this problem.
Complete XML and HTML spell-checking in the source code
IntelliSpell eliminates the need to export XML-based help documentation to a word processing application for spell-checking. Decrease errors and take less time to complete spell-checking.
Spell correction is easy with the task list
All spell-checking data can easily be tracked within your application (wiggly underlines), or within the Task List (line item spelling mistakes). This makes it easy to run through corrections for an entire project. Simply double-click the spelling mistake in the Task List to open the Visual Studio file containing the spelling error; you do not have to search through pages of code to find spelling mistakes.
