Hello all,

Recently my company has discovered a need for a web based spell checker. Several of us have done some research and found a few products that fit the bill.

Jazzy (Java based, open source spell checker.)
Aspell (C++ based, open source spell checker.)
WBOSS (Pearl based, open source spell checker.)
Jspell (Java based, commercial spell checker.)
IESpell (Active X, Internet Explorer plugin spell checker.)

Since we are almost completely a Java development shop the only 2 options that seem viable are Jazzy and/or Jspell. IESpell seems to have merit but I need to make sure the distribution is as hassle free as it seems from their site.

I was curious if anyone could shed some light on these products and/or list any alternate packages.

Thanks in advance.

Heath,

I worked at a company with a JSP transcription product. We integrated the Wintertree spellcheck applet with success. Easy to install and performant, and you can customize the word list:
