Spelling checker does not work at all in text area
I have read all the solutions suggested for helping solve problem with spelling checker tried a fix but to no help.
Here is the problem, when i right click the mouse to get access to language for spell checking, I do not get the alternatives that include selection of language. This happens in the text area but not in the address area where I can see the option of selecting the language and hence even being able to spell check.
I have tried selecting the language in Outlook, gmail, creating a post in LinkedIn and elsewhere and all I get is nothing.
Incidentally, writing here was ok without any issues.
So, friends out there, please help me solve this one
