Advanced setting Spell Check Depth is used to control the quality of the suggested spellings provided when the spell checker identifies a misspelled word. Valid values are from 0 to 100. A value of 100 indicates Jarte's spell checker should give its very best effort to find the most likely correct spellings for a misspelled word. However, this "best effort" comes at a price since a value 100 will cause the spell checker to use more time to find the best spellings. Reasonably late model computers should have enough to CPU power to allow Jarte's spell checker to use a Spell Check Depth value of 100 without using a significant amount of extra time.

Normally, the default value for Spell Check Depth is 100 (the maximum). However, there are two situations where the setting defaults to a value of 40:

1. For Windows versions below Windows XP (e.g., Windows 95, 98, ME, etc). In these cases it is assumed the computer may be an older model for which a large value for Spell Check Depth may cause significant delays during spell checking.
2.When Jarte is running from a portable drive. USB flash drives use slow memory which can significantly affect the speed of the spell checker if a large value for Spell Check Depth is used.

It should be noted that even a Spell Check Depth setting of zero will still provide a reasonably satisfactory list of spelling suggestions for a misspelled word in most cases. For best results, set the value of Spell Check Depth to the highest value that allows the spell checker to still perform at a satisfactory speed. Example:

Spell Check Depth=75

The default value is "100":

Spell Check Depth=100
