Bing Spell Check

Help users correct spelling errors, recognise the differences amongst names, brand names and slang, and understand homophones while they type.

See for yourself

Try out the spell check capabilities with Bing Spell Search API v7. Switch between spelling correction for web searches (“Spell”) and documents (“Proof”) from the drop-down in the top-left. “Spell” is more aggressive in order to return better search results, while “Proof” is less aggressive and adds capitalisation, basic punctuation and other features to aid document creation. With the API v7, discover new improved error handling to make it easy to troubleshoot and diagnose any problem queries.
