    I created a Google add-on that may be of interest. It uses Google sheets and your browser speech synthesis to speak the words. Please see it here: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/ready-steady-spell/joliflhljdhdikoiaphebgbkkfggpofp?utm_source=permalink and let me know what you think.

    Hey Mr. Mac –

    The instructions on how to turn off the underlining for misspelled words in Google Forms is a dead link. Do you know of another one, or can you give instructions on how to do it? I have been trying to figure out how to give Spelling Tests online for over a month now with no luck. Yours was my first hope, but since I can’t get spell check turned off in Google Forms, I’m still stuck at square one.

    Thanks!

      I noticed that if a student uses the spell check to fix a word, that that word is highlighted in red and marked with an X. They still get the points, however. If a student fixes the word manually, then they get it correct and it’s highlighted green. I tested this several times and each time I hit the spell check my answer was highlighted in red and marked wrong. I’m not sure why else that word could be highlighted in red and marked wrong. But I would like to find out because otherwise I am assuming my kiddos were cheating.
