New spell checker in the Digiexam lockdown application

A new spell checker with improved functionality and support for additional languages has been released with the last update of the Digiexam lockdown application (version 15.0.0).

This release will address the reported issues with the text editor exhibiting erratic behavior for certain users when the spell check feature is turned on.

The spell checker remains a manual tool that highlights misspelled words, allowing students to personally modify or edit the identified words.



The spell check can be activated by the students with the On/Off button if the accessibility setting is allowed in the exam.

When the spell checker is active there's a small icon in the bottom right corner.

A green icon indicates that no misspelt words are found.

Misspelt words are indicated in the text and through the icon in the bottom right corner.

If the mouse cursor is held over the indicator in the bottom right corner, three options are available: 

1. On/Off

2. Switch language

3. Indicated words to change/correct
