Checking the Entire Presentation
When PowerPoint i nds a misspelled word with the spell checker, you can respond to it using
Select the suggestion
that is most appropriate.
Click the speaker icon to
hear the word pronounced.
When PowerPoint can’t ﬁ nd any more misspelled words, it displays a dialog box to let you
know this; click OK to close it.
If you have more than one language dictionary available (for example, if you use PowerPoint in a multilingual office and have pur-
chased multiple language packs from Microsoft), then you can specify which language’s dictionary to use for which text. To do so,
select the text that is in a different language than the rest of the presentation, and then click Review
Set Proofing Language. Select the appropriate language from the list and click OK.
If PowerPoint is conﬁ gured to also check for grammar errors (see the next section, “Setting
Spelling and Grammar Options”), a Grammar task pane appears when it detects one. Figure
7.5 shows an example. The options are much simpler; you can choose to ignore the grammar
error or to change to one of the suggestions on the Suggestions list.
