Spell Checker

      "Ode to the Spell Chequer!"

Eye halve a spelling chequer
It came with my pea sea
It plainly marques four my revue
Miss steaks eye kin knot sea.
Eye strike a key and type a word
And weight four it two say
Weather eye am wrong oar write
It shows me strait a weigh.
As soon as a mist ache is maid
It nose bee fore two long
And eye can put the error rite
Its rare lea ever wrong.
Eye have run this poem threw it
I am shore your pleased two no
Its letter perfect awl the weigh
My chequer tolled me sew.

Do you think they used the same voice recognition software that's used for live subtitlies to generate that?

I first started using PCs in about 1995, and even then this poem was still doing the rounds... Grin

About 15 years ago, I created a whole story out of what happened when I put my colleagues' names through Word's spillchucker:

It's a good job I don't eat breakfast - my screen would be covered in Corn Flakes. Grin
