spell check dictionary download failed

  • Hi all,

    I've scoured the forums and saw some old threads regarding this same issue and no one has ever posted a solution. Has anyone figured out how to actually download these dictionaries besides those who restarted the browser/pc 50 times until it worked magically? I have been using Opera for several months now and of course I've gone through several reset cycles. It doesn't work on my personal pcs or my work pc.

    I wish I could just upload a local dictionary somehow.

  • There have been a couple of posts on downloading the dictionary separately for use in Opera ...

    I am thinking of switching to another browser for that reason. Since I am a lousy tyoist, I often make misteaks and I need the spell check to make me look intelligent (and handsome) Sometimes spell check works, mostly, it doesn't. After an hour of fiddling around around settings, I could not find anything, and I am rather annoyed

    I cannotg tell my verfsion, because I just looked for it for several minutes, and could not find anything in the "about" tab

    Clicking on O > Help > About Opera should produce a simple display screen showing the version number in large-font symbols, as well as a smaller-font update status text, followed by the channel name (eg: Stable) and the OS system (eg: Windows 10 64-bit (WoW64)).

    Now downloading....... let's see what happens

    Still no spell check, and I wrote in Spanish "en este mundo triador de problemas nadie escapa..." "in this treacherous world, no one escapes problems" none of which should have escaped the default dictionary.

    I am really "annoyed off" at this situation!
