Hi.  Agreed.  Using a spell-checker is certainly a good idea.  Although, I
never accept a change unless I'm absolutely certain that it's correct.  All
I'd add is that folks be extra careful when using spell-check.

Hmmm, interesting.  With your example sentences, my JAWS spoke to me in the
following way:

This first sentence is fine dot But it runs into this next one.
I could tell there wasn't a space after the first sentence because it said
the word dot rather than just pausing at the period.

I am validating a book where words or sentences are run together. The person
using a screen reader to review a book rather than using a braille display
or looking at the screen may not catch these run together words or sentences
unless a spell checker is used.
I know somebody validated this book and let lots of sentences such as the
following go right through.

This first sentence is fine.But it runs into this next one.
Without a braille display I would not know the period in the above sentence
was not followed by a space.

Spell checking of this sort is particularly important if validating a book
children may use when learning braille.
