A spell checker (or spell check) is a software program that checks the spelling of words in a document. Spell checkers may be standalone programs or built into text editors, word processors, operating systems, and web browsers.

The first spell checkers were developed for mainframe computers in the late 1950s and early 1960s. These early spell checkers were mostly limited to checking for misspellings in a single language, typically English.

Most spell checkers are now based on dictionaries that contain a list of words that are allowed. The spell checker will then use this list of words to check the spelling of the document that you are trying to check. If the spell checker does not find a word in the dictionary, it will mark it as an error.

The purpose of a spell checker is to help you correct the spelling of your document. This is especially important if you are sending a document to someone else, such as a client or a boss. It is also important if you are going to print your document. If you have misspellings in your document, it can look unprofessional.

There are different options that you can set for your spell checker. For example, you can choose to have it ignore words that are in all caps, or words with numbers in them. You can also choose to have the spell checker suggest corrections for you.

Most spell checkers will underline words that it thinks are misspelled. You can then right-click on the word and choose the correct spelling from the list of options.

Spell check is a very important tool when it comes to dictionaries. It helps to ensure that the words in the dictionary are spelled correctly and that they are used in the correct context. This is especially important for students who are learning to read and write. By using spell check, they can avoid making mistakes that could potentially lead to confusion or embarrassment.
