The Standard and Full CKEditor packages include the integrated spell checking functionality. It is an out-of-the-box solution provided by third-party plugins, WebSpellChecker and SpellCheckAsYouType (SCAYT), that use the WebSpellChecker.net web service.
When either of the plugins is enabled, thebutton is automatically added to the toolbar. Depending on which plugin you use, it may contain numerous SCAYT options and open the Spell Check dialog window.
The SpellCheckAsYouType (SCAYT) plugin checks the spelling of the text in the editing area immediately as you type it and marks all errors with a red wavy line. By default it needs to be enabled by choosing Enable SCAYT from thetoolbar button, but you can also configure SCAYT to start automatically on editor loading, like in the editor instance below.
The WebSpellChecker plugin provides the Spell Check dialog window that lets you check the spelling of the document word by word. Additionally, for some languages a Grammar Checker and Thesaurus feature is also available.
By default, browser spell check functionality is disabled. Set the
configuration option to
false to enable it. If the
Context Menu plugin is enabled, it is necessary to hold the
Ctrl key when right-clicking misspelled words to see the suggested corrections.
