Hello,

I want to know if is it possible to use the Ms Word spell checker with the Oxygen Author component 14.2 ?
Thanks in advance for your answer.

Hi Sébastien,

We do not have built-in support for this. Right now the Author Component comes with support for the open Hunspell engine.
Also I'm not sure what spell checker MS Word uses, if it can be used in other applications or not.

Speaking in general the Author API has support for adding non-persistent highlights so it is possible to create a spell checking plugin for it (for example like the one implemented by Acrolinx or by Language Tools https://github.com/danielnaber/oxygen-l ... ool-plugin) which sends the XML content to a spell checking engine, obtains ranges of problems and then highlights them in the editor.

Regards,
Radu
