SpellsWell 7 is a product of Working Software, based in Santa Cruz, California.

>Does it work satisfactory with Eudora and is it a shareware?

The version that I have, 1.0.3, has a terrible user interface (nobody
thought to read the Apple Human Interface Guidelines), works "okay", and is
certainly not shareware. Because Word Services is an AppleEvent suite, the
performance is nowhere near something that's got all the code in one place,
like the Spelling feature of Word 5.1a.
