Here is a good website if you are interested in spelling words. Fifteen words are spoken and you have to spell them in the quickest possible time: 282 is my current highest score

wow what a cool game ... 191 so far .... it's quite clever the way in which it picks the next word to let you know that you're a plonker for getting previous one wrong.... Smile

Hmm. All 15 correct and 234 scored. I can type, but not that quickly!

I am still enjoying this spelling site. The only problem I have with it is that the male person saying the words is sometimes indistinct which means that you have to use the repeat facility and you lose time overall. Rolling Eyes

Hi Briant,

I noticed that too. I turned up the treble on my speakers and it helped a little.
