Microsoft PowerPoint doesn't check the spelling in embedded objects (embedded object: Information (object) contained in a source file and inserted into a destination file. Once embedded, the object becomes part of the destination file. Changes you make to the embedded object are reflected in the destination file.) such as charts, in special text effects such as WordArt (WordArt: Text objects you create with ready-made effects to which you can apply additional formatting options.), or in inserted objects such as Microsoft Word documents.
Do one of the following:
Check spelling in the whole presentation
Check spelling as you type
- On the Tools menu, click Options, and then click the Spelling and Style tab.
- Select the Check spelling as you type check box.
- To choose from a list of possible corrections, in your presentation, right-click the word that has the wavy, red line, and then click an option on the shortcut menu.
Note In the Options dialog box, use the other check boxes under Spelling to further control the spelling checks.
