Quality Assurance


Introduction

This chapter gives information on how to use the spellcheck quality assurance feature to detect and repair misspelled words with Monsido.

Note: The Monsido Spellcheck feature scans for misspelled words in the primary language of the page by default. In the case that the page language is something other than the primary language of the domain, words can be marked as potential misspellings if they are not found in the dictionary even if they are correctly spelled in the language of origin. Turn on the Use Language Attribute function in domain configuration to avoid this.

For more information, see the User Guide chapters:

Quality Assurance: Dictionary

FAQ: Why does language detection specify the wrong language.

    • Languages found: Current number of languages detected on the site, based on the most recent scan.

    • Most common language: Based on the most recent scan, the most common language detected on the site.

  • Most common misspellings: The misspellings that occur most frequently on the site, based on the most recent scan.

  • Most common potential misspellings: The most common potential misspellings on the site, based on the most recent scan.

        For more information, see the User Guide chapter:

        Quality Assurance: Dictionary

      • Ignore Misspelling - Use this option:

        • If words, for example proper nouns or names, are marked as misspellings when they are not.

        • To ignore spelling issues on a single-page basis.

        • To ignore all other issues on a domain level.

          Note: Ignored issues will not be factored into future scans, and this permanently affects the compliance score.

      • Mark as fixed: Marks the misspelled word as fixed. It will be included in subsequent scans and if the error returns, it will appear again in the broken links list. Select this option when the misspelled word is actually fixed by the web team on the HTML code of the webpage, or if it is a temporary (for example, in an unpublished state) known issue.

        Note: The difference between Mark as Fixed and Mark as Ignored is that issues marked as Fixed are still included in future scans and can be flagged again if the error persists. Issues that are set to Ignore are permanently omitted from future scans and compliance scores.

Advanced Settings

This chapter gives some advanced settings that may help solve some recurring spellcheck issues.


Confirm language settings

See the FAQ document for instructions on how to set the primary language for a URL or page. If the wrong language is set up for the page or website there could be many misspelled words flagged by the scan.

For more information, see the User Guide chapter in the FAQ:

Why does Language Detection specify the wrong language?


Add a source code exclusion to Spellcheck

This section gives instructions for advanced users on how to exclude a segment of the webpage from the spellcheck.

  1. Click </> Source Code Excludes on the menu on the left-hand side of the page. The </> Source Code Excludes window opens.

    Once added, subsequent scans identify elements that match the entered CSS selector patterns and omit them from the results.

For more information, see the User Guide chapter:

Ignore capitalized words

Words that the user includes in the Dictionary are case-sensitive. To instruct the scan to ignore words that are written in all caps, and bypass the need to, for example, add the word to the dictionary, follow the steps below for instructions about the Spelling ignore capitalized words option. This option allows users to instruct the scan to ignore words that are written in caps.

  1. From the Monsido Domain Overview (Globe icon) click Settings (the gear icon) at the top of the page. The Admin Settings page opens.

    Note: The Settings button is only available to site admins.
