Improved spell check for PowerPoint Online

With the new school year underway, the PowerPoint Online team has been working hard to create features to help you ace all of your presentations. We know there is nothing worse than finding a misspelling on your slide when you are in the middle of a presentation—especially when the presentation is 20 percent of your final grade. To help you avoid this situation and deliver great, error-free, presentations we added spell check to the PowerPoint Online editor. We previously utilized the browser spell check for PowerPoint Online, but we switched to the high-quality Office spell checker. When you are editing text in PowerPoint Online, misspelled words are flagged with a red underline, so you can correct them before you finalize your presentation.

PowerPoint Online Spell checker

You can try out spell check right now by going to Office.com and selecting PowerPoint Online. We hope you love this feature as much as we do. We always love to hear from our users. Feel free to send us feedback anytime—just click Help Improve Office in the bottom right corner of PowerPoint Online.
