If the spell checker flags certain words as misspelled but you want it to ignore these words, you can add them to the default custom dictionary. To change the default custom dictionary where these words are added, see Change the custom dictionary to which the spelling checker adds words, below.
If you want your new custom dictionary to be the default dictionary, where any words you add will be saved, see the next task, Change the custom dictionary to which the spelling checker adds words.
The Custom Dictionaries dialog box lists the available custom dictionaries the program can use to check spelling. If the dictionary you want to use, such as one purchased from a third-party company, is installed on your computer but not listed in the Dictionary list box, you can add it.
If you want this custom dictionary to be the default dictionary, where any new words you add will be saved, see the section Change the custom dictionary to which the spelling checker adds words above.
Chrome comes with a native spell checker, which should be enabled by default. The dictionary is typically set to the language of your operating system, but you can add and switch between multiple languages. This spell checker also offers an advanced version that uses the Google search spell checking technology. This, however, involves routing your text through Google's servers. So let's see all the options in detail.
Note 2: You can also enable an enhanced spell checker, which will recognize other errors, like a missing space or hyphen. In Settings > Advanced, go to Privacy and security, click Sync and Google services, and, at the bottom of the list, enable Enhanced spell check.
If Chrome is wrong about a spelling, you don't have to go to the Settings menu to add a new word. Simply right-click the word and select Add to dictionary. Now the spell checker won't highlight that word again.
Note: Chrome might not automatically spell check long texts. With the spell checker enabled, it will, however, spell check everything you type. To process a long text, for example when opening a post in WordPress, you might have to click each paragraph to initiate Chrome's spell check for that paragraph.
Even with all features enabled, Google's spell checker remains somewhat basic because it doesn't check grammar or style. Meanwhile, the Chrome Web Store is boasting with alternative spell checkers. So if you need an advanced tool, try one of these great grammar checkers.
Grammarly is an AI-powered writing assistant that includes a contextual spell and grammar checker. Like Chrome's default spell checker, it works in all text fields. Over 10 million users and a near perfect user rating make it the de facto gold standard for spell and grammar checking in your browser.
If you want to proofread content in more than one language, try this grammar and spell checker for Chrome. With almost 250 thousand users and a 4.5/5 rating, it's one of the most-used and best-rated spell checkers for Chrome.
The best spell and grammar checker will always be a human, aided by technology. Technology isn't always smart enough to understand context and may offer strange fixes. By asking Google for suggestions, however, you will get close to perfect corrections.
Clearly Chrome has a built-in dictionary that it uses for spell-checking. Is there an API or some way to access this dictionary? I am interested not in checking spelling, but actually accessing the dictionary. E.g. I would like to write Dictionary autocomplete extension for chrome? a dictionary autocomplete extension that uses Chrome's dictionary instead of maintaining my own. Of particular interest to me would be a funciton like getWordsThatStartWith(text).
I am not sure if this is related to your request. It appears another developer created an extension to look up words, not sure if the api he founded used the internal dictionary spell-check or not...my assumption would be that the api merely return results from a google query using an advance search feature like "define: example", example being the query/word. Here's a link to the article though it's quite outdated.
I completely removed Aspell and all associated dictionaries. Afterwards I reinstalled in the non (x86) directory and reinstalled the dspell plugin in Notepad ++. Once this was done everything was fine.
The SCAYT plugin includes numerous configuration options that let you customize the default spell checking language, the number of SCAYT suggestions available or the content of the spell checker context menu.
Both Firefox and Google Chrome browsers already have spell-checker, You just need to install additional dictionary in Firefox, in Google Chrome most of the dictionaries are enabled by default.

Hunspell is the spell checker of LibreOffice, OpenOffice.org, Mozilla Firefox & Thunderbird, Google Chrome, and it is also used by proprietary software packages, like macOS, InDesign, memoQ, Opera and SDL Trados.
Sometimes I feel very much annoying "favourite" and "favorite are counted as a wrong spelling for each other. But I need a spell checker for my careless mistakes.I know one way, to add the words each time I saw it into the dictionary, I'm too lazy for that and it only apply for one machine, I'd like to have this for several different machines.
EDIT: I really hope the spell checker accept both UK and US spelling in one dictionary, so I can type "favourite" or "favorite" up to my mood.I appreciate you are telling me the way to do this, especially on Firefox and Google chrome browser, or the system-wide.
Mac user here. Spelling should be controlled by OS to be consistent across applications. I vote to remove Obsidian custom spell checker in the Mac version and use native one. I would gladly do the development work if you allow me to help with this.
Whats amazing about the google search, is the machine learning. The spellings can be wildly out and it still works most of the time. I am a diligent person, but spelling is one I have skiped.Figurative765×611 9.6 KB
Integrating the spell checker in Google Chrome is not as clean as in Firefox but it works. (It shows up as Polish dictionary). In order to install it you have to perform the following steps:
Firefox, Thunderbird, Chromium and LibreOffice can all use system-wide installed Hunspell dictionaries as well as dictionaries/other spell checkers installed through their own extension systems. See the following sections:
There are two built-in spell checker engines available in Oxygen (Hunspell and Java spell checker). The two formats of spell dictionaries are different so you need different dictionary files for each spell checker.
This spell checker used in OpenOffice, Mozilla, and Chrome is also available in Oxygen and it includes the following built-in dictionaries: English (generic, United States, United Kingdom, Canada), French, German (generic, Germany), Spanish (generic, Spain).
If you cannot find a dictionary for your language, you can build a dictionary that is compatible with Hunspell. Suppose you have a specific list of words that you want to check in your documents when you run the Hunspell checker. You can build a dictionary by following these instructions.
After downloading new dictionaries (and restarting IMatch), you can open the Edit > Preferences > Application dialog and scroll down to see the spell checker options. Click on the Language drop-down to expand it. All languages for which dictionaries have been found are listed here. If the list is empty or does not show your new dictionary, the dictionary files are not named properly.
You can either just fix the typo manually in the editor, or you right-click the underlined word to open the spell checker context menu. This menu shows the suggestions found by the spell checker in the dictionary.
IMatch automatically creates and maintains a custom dictionary in Hunspell format for each IMatch user. The spell checker context menu allows you to add words to your custom dictionary. These words will then not be flagged as misspelled words again. A custom dictionary works across all languages.
Recently I became a huge fan of Google Docs despite all the deficiencies. But there's one thing that really repels me from writing anything in language other than English, namely poor spell checker. It does not recognize about 10-20% of words in Polish and quite a few French words too, which is quite a big number I should say.
For the French language, Druide Antidote and Cordial are the best (spell + grammar + conjugation checkers) and have integration for Google Chrome. But they aren't free. Otherwise, Spell Checker for Chrome is a free extension that supports French.
