Google Omitted From Microsoft Spell Checker?

October 7, 2009

I was proofing a document today in Microsoft Word and while Word correctly marked Google as potentially misspelled word, I was surprised Word offered no corrections or spelling suggestions.

Apparently, Google has not yet been added to Microsoft Word’s spell checker dictionary.

I guess its understandable since Google is a relatively new (and made up) brand name.

Funny though… Microsoft – another recognizable technology ( and made up) brand name – is in Microsoft’s spell checker for misspellings of Microsoft.

I am sure Google’s omission from Microsoft’s Word dictionary was just an oversight.
