spelling mistake

What’s a spell checker?

When you write online, a spell checker shows you the words you misspelled. It can be an individual feature or standalone software.

word use

So, what does it actually fix?

Commonly misspelled words: Words that sound alike but have different meanings and spellings, like “their” vs. “there” or “accept” vs. “except.” 

Typos: Mistakes made while typing, such as missed or extra letters, transposed letters, or incorrect placement of punctuation. 

Compound word errors: When word combinations are split or combined in the wrong way. For example, writing “everyday” when you mean “every day.”
