My favorite app, NewerTech's SpellTools, is not OS9 compatible. The company says the product is freeware and therefore will not be updated. Well, I'm not updating my home machine to OS9 because of this. Does anyone know of a product similar to SpellTools?

there are a few... whether you will like them and/or consider them a viable replacement for SpellTools is another story...

Excalibur just came out today 11/12/99, it is freeware and has been around awhile http://www.eg.bucknell.edu/~excalibr/excalibur.html

also, go to www.versiontracker.com and do a search there for the keyword 'spell'

Just learned a guy's taking over SpellTools and he's got it patched for os/9. Go to this url:

Unfortuantely, I already spent a bunch of money buying OneClick and SpellCatcher to replace this cool little tool's functions.
