    Win 10 Spell Check - How does it work?


    07/03/18 I'm using:
    Win 10 Pro, Version 1803 (OS Build 17134.112)

    If you go to (please see screen shot): Settings / Devices / Typing

    I put the slider to "on" here for everything, except:
    1.) Add a space after I choose a text suggestion
    2.) Add a period after I double-tap the Space bar
    3.) Show text predictions based on the recognized languages you're typing in

    Question #1
    Shouldn't "Highlight misspelled words" be
    "Put a red squiggly line under misspelled words"
    . . . right-click on the body of text in an e-mail / Check Spelling
    because that is apparently how it's "highlighting,"
    it's not like it's using a "yellow highlighter" on your misspelled words,
    I think the description here is bad

    Question #2
    Is Win 10 Spell Check like the "Grammarly" Firefox Add-on?
    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fir...n/grammarly-1/
    . . . where all the text you type goes to a server somewhere to determine the spelling errors?
    . . . or does it use a dictionary and thesaurus on your computer? I would hope.

    :)

    Spell check is not working on Twitter.

    Hi Marie,

    Windows should make necessary auto-correction if the Autocorrect misspelled words option in the Settings app is enabled. A built-in restriction on the website you are using could be a possible cause why the spell check is not working on it. For us to provide
    an accurate resolution, we would need you to answer the following questions:

    • Are you experiencing the same issue even when accessing the website using other web browsers, or is the issue isolated to a specific browser?
    • Is the spell check working before on the website you are using? If yes, what changes have you made to your computer before this issue occurred?
    • Are you experiencing the same issue on other websites?

    To check if the issue is not with the built-in spell checker on your Windows 10, we suggest testing it on any Office application. Let us know if the spell check is also not working with the Office apps.

    We are looking forward to your response.
