Accessing Words to Review in the Misspellings Report
The Words to Review section of the Misspellings Report can be accessed from the Dashboard using the "Words to review" button or through the Quality Assurance menu item (Quality Assurance > Spelling > Find Misspellings) and then choosing the "Needs Review" tab.
Understanding the Words to Review Screen
The Misspellings Report contains an additional tab called "Needs Review." From this tab, you can see a list of words that Siteimprove has flagged as possible misspellings in need of review. The words flagged for your section will be listed here, along with spelling suggestions (if any), when the word was first detected, a measure of the probability that the word is a misspelling, and how many pages the word has been flagged on, as shown below.
About the Word to Review
To see the page or pages that contain a word needing review, click on the word in the Word column. This will bring up a pop up box with the page title and URL identified. The pop up box will also show the word in context, as shown below.
You can also use the arrow in the Pages column to view a listing of the pages containing a particular word to review, as shown below.
Making a Determination for a Word from the Needs Review Tab
Once the Pages column has been expanded, you can use icons under the "Decision for page" column to indicate whether to approve the word for that page (thumbs up), or to mark it as a misspelling (thumbs down). In general, avoid using the icons under "Decision for site" column unless you are absolutely sure that your decision for that word will be applicable for all pages and in all circumstances going forward.
Viewing the a Word to Review on a Page
To see the word needing review in context on a page, click on the page title. You will be taken the Page Report for the page in question; the word to review will be highlighted in yellow and outlined in red.
Making a Determination for a Word from the Page Report
You can make a determination about the word from the Page Report by clicking on the gear icon next to the words "Decision for this issue," as shown below. Important! In general, it is best to make a decision for "This page only," unless you are sure that your decision should apply to every page on our site.
Note: If a word needing review is in an accordion, you'll have to use the Show HTML button to see where on the page it occurs.
