There are two simple ways to adjust Microsoft Word so that the automatic spell check can recognize names that are frequently used when typing; add it to the dictionary when using spell check or manually add it to a custom dictionary by going to the "Options" tab. Under the "Options" tab, click on "Proofing," "Custom Dictionaries" and then "Edit Word List." A window will open that allows names or unusual words to the MS Word database.
Using Word's auto spell check to check a document opens a panel that displays the words in the document that are identified as incorrect. Users review words and can change the spelling based on the programs suggestions; there is also an option to add a word to the dictionary so that it is stored in the word list and will be acknowledged by the system in the future.
To run a spelling and grammar check, click on the "Review" tab and then the "Spelling and Grammar" button in the upper left hand corner of the pane. To find the "Options" function, users should first navigate to the "File" page and then find the button in the lower left hand side of the screen underneath "Help."
