If you want to check one word put your cursor at the beginning of the word and press F7 for the spell check. If you don't want to lose your place in the document or message listen to the correction and press escape before word corrects it. For one line at a time put the cursor at the beginning of the line and hit F7. Spell check will proceed to check all the words in the line and perhaps start checking more of the document. Placing the cursor at the beginning of the word or line is synonymous with going to the first letter or character of whatever you want to check.
