Maybe because the spell checker doesn't ensure that the suggestions it's giving are actually in the database before making them? So you get weird situations where you do a search for something and get several results, but the spell checker says, "Perhaps you meant ______." Then when you go to search ______ you get ZERO results. It's confusing for the patrons and not really useful.
That's a good reason not to use the spell checker. (Though we do, still, use it here.)

With apologies in regard to my earlier response. . . it was Spell Checker which we had III turn off shortly after going live with WebPAC Pro. My confusion stemmed from the fact that there are staff here at Western who also lean towards having Right Results turned off. But it was Spell Checker which we removed.
