Excalibur has carried me through e-mails, forums, and virtually everything that requires text that is not in a major page layout program with good built in spell checkers, like InDesign. I simply think Excalibur is indespensible and one of the most valuable software additions to the new Panther Mac OS.

Too bad spelltools does not work with 9.1,

Excalibur is a clunky replacement. Instead of correcting spelling on the fly one must save the file to the hard disc then open it, selelct all to put it in the clipboard, then run excalibur.

Newertech seems o be gone but if someone could make spelltools work wiith 9.1 or 10 I would be so thankful.

It is a stand-alone spelling checker that you can use with many other applications. If you want to use it for spell checking the clipboard, it's probably best to turn on the Open the Clipboard option or the Open the Clipboard and Go option. See Start-up Actions for more information. Excalibur supports Word Services which streamlines its operation with MT-NewsWatcher, Eudora Pro, Communicate, Nisus Writer, and AppleWorks.
