  • Yes it does... it takes mcuh of the learning out of our world today. Instead of trying to appropriately spell things people just let the computer do it for them. I will make my children submit reports in the same fashion I still do to this day. Write it out first, check it, THEN type it if it is required to be typed.

  • No, I think people are lazy in general with regards to spelling and grammar. Look at the "texspeak" that shows up everywhere on the internet.

  • It can....I don't really care, to tell you the truth....spell check isn't perfect, thought, so if you want to catch all the errors you still have to check it yourself..

  • absolutely not ~ spell check is just a backup for misspelling... if someone uses it otherwise, then yes, they are beyond lazy!

  • I never really need to use the spell check. I only use it when I am unsure of the spelling of a word. I however think it makes you extremely lazy ;) JUST KIDDING

  • I just type and try to be careful, but I always hit spell check to be sure.
