Disable spell check



  • How do I disable spell check in Vivaldi? I cannot find any in the settings. I hate that annoying thing. Keeps saying my words are wrong, even though they right.



  • hello. though i do somewhat get a smile when it puts a red squiggle line under the word judgement.

    • Go to a webiste where you can type stuff.
    • Type some stuff that craetes the red lines
    • Rightclick the red line
    • In the popup menu select "Spell-checker optons"
    • Click "Check the speling of typed text feilds"
      [/ol]
      Worked for me. If this menu doesn't appear you might need to go to vivaldi://flags and enable the multilingual spell checker. I did this to try and get straya english but sadly it doesn't work as this is not a supported language, only yank english apparently.

    It ought to. The word is spelled "judgment."



  • Either way is fine depending on where you're from.

    Judgment is always acceptable everywhere. Judgement is always a misspelling in the US, but has gained ground in the UK through popular misuse over several decades. In US dictionaries, the only spelling is judgment. In UK dictionaries judgement is never preferred, but may be offered as an alternate spelling.

    You have made a misjudgement there. Judgment is flagged as an error with the UK Hunspell spelling checker used by Opera 12.17. It's not an acceptable spelling in the UK in a general context.

    WordWeb accepts both spellings, and doesn't mark either as "chiefly US."

    WordWeb Software is based in Brighton, UK and run by the main developer, Antony Lewis. International versions are usually supported by native speakers based in a target country,

    @Oxford Online Dictionary:

    Usage
    In British English the normal spelling in general contexts is judgement. However, the spelling judgment is conventional in legal contexts, and in North American English.

    That's what I get for working with lawyers all the time.

    All the correspondence we get from England is "judgment."

    In researching the history of the word, I found that originally this was the universal spelling - but that since the 1800's, "judgement" has crept in and now, apparently, taken over.

    that worked thanks



  • @Ayespy:

    … In US dictionaries, the only spelling is judgment. ...

    Taking a look into the Webster's Third New International Dictionary (unabridged) there is 'judgment' and 'judgement' given as 'equal variants' where 'the first is no more to be preferred than the second' and 'both are standard and any one may be used according to personal inclination or personal style preferences.'

    And Webster's Third New International is not US English. It's "International" English.

    Per the Dictionary.com blog:

    "Many think that the difference between judgement and judgment is that the longer version is the British spelling, whereas the shorter one is the convention in the US. While some claim that Noah Webster first recorded the spelling of judgment in his 1828 American Dictionary of the English Language, judgment has been the prevailing spelling on both sides of the pond since the late 1600s.

    Though judgement has risen and fallen in popularity in British English, judgment remains the preferred spelling in British legal proceedings and appears more frequently in written work. Today, judgement is an accepted spelling in British English, but if you stick to judgment, you won’t be judged in the UK or the US."

    As for me and my house, we judge the cost of an extra "e" (though it means buying a vowel) to be minimal. So, aye, each of ye whilom users of Olde Opera, I parfay rede ye to now getteth ye hither to proffer positive, certes, and soothfast judgement anent Vivaldi, spell-checkers and dictionaries notwithstanding!

    "to getteth ye hither…"

    OK. But it's "...to get ye hither..."

    2nd person present perfect tense is "to get." In fact, second person present tense without the perfect tense (narrative case) is "gettest."

    "Getteth" is always 3rd person present tense. I get, get ye, I beg ye to get; thou gettest; he/she/it getteth. This is one of the most common grammar errors of persons pretending to Olde English. They always screw up and tell a person in the second person present tense to goeth, getteth or doeth, when "-eth" is always third person, second person narrative is always "-est," and imperative case, perfect tenses and first person are always without a suffix. Just sayin'...



  • Sadly one of the things that Vivaldi is bringing from Chromium is the terrible build in spell checker.

    For those typing in more than one language, having to switch all the time is terrible. I absolutely hate the Chrome spell checker, how it suggests words, the way it marks them and the bugs it has with the selection while switching languages, marking everything as red when you switch the language and having to put the cursor right in the start again so it can do its spell check magic.

    Opera 12 had it perfect, and Firefox is not bad but you need to select the language manually on each website you go.

    Opera 12 actually detected the language of the page (which is not rocket science) and set the spell checker to the correct language. Simple technology like that is what not a single browser can replicate so far.



  • there is no "spell-checker optons", I'm on vivaldi for Mac OS X. there's also no multilingual spell checker in the flags.



  • Hi, did you try:
    vivaldi://flags/#enable-multilingual-spellchecker
    Work for me with 1.0.390.3 on Linux.

    Cheers, mip



  • well, the anchor doesn't help here, because I do not have this option in the flags page. but thanks



  • Any useful answers? Spell-checking is terrible in Vivaldi and there should be at least an option to turn it off for those who are still able to write without some prop. Nothing under flags for me. Nothing under languages, nothing under Chrome. I really started to like Vivaldi, but this is disgusting. I hate to have a stupid (did I say stupid, oh yeah) machine meddle with my language. Thank you.

    Your language needs meddling with. Try something like this?

    I tried the suggestions given above, but nothing worked for me. What else can I try? Thank you.

    As for me, I can just right-click, and deselect "Check the spelling of text fields as you type," on the Spellcheck submenu. I have English UK as my default, but English US is also available, or both.



  • Hi Pesala,

    thank you for your answer. You write:

    Unfortunately, as I've indicated above, that doesn't work for me. There is no spellcheck submenu when I right-click. Is this a Mac issue? I don't know. Thing is, spell-checking doesn't work well and it's just distractive, especially if it's on while typing. I'm afraid I get irritated easily when that happens, i.e. having a non-essential feature pushed on me with no (obvious) way or non at all to disable. Hence my slightly irate post.
    I attach two screenshots to illustrate.
