Learn how to use the PowerPoint 2000 Spell Check feature to ensure a professional presentation in this free lesson.

Spelling check

PowerPoint's spelling check feature checks the entire presentation, including outline and notes, for spelling errors. It also gives you the option of selecting a specific word or paragraph to spell check.

To check the spelling of a presentation:

  • Open your presentation
  • Click the Spell and Grammar check button Spell Check Button on the Standard toolbar.


  • Open your presentation.
  • Choose ToolsactionSpelling.

If no words appear to be misspelled, it will say the spelling check is complete.

If a word appears to be misspelled, a dialog box suggests one or more alternatives for the word in question. Choose any suggested word by selecting the word and clicking Change. If you are sure the word in question is spelled correctly, click Ignore.
