Spell check can be accessed from the top navigation bar on Outlook. After you click "Spell check," all misspelled words in your message body will be underlined in red. You can then left-click the word to get a pop-up list of corrections. The screenshot above was taken in Internet Explorer 9. I noticed that in Firefox, the Spell check feature is absent ...

As @w3d pointed out, is not an issue with Gmail configuration, but my browser's. I'm using Firefox 14.0.1 and the method to disable the spell checker (in order to avoid spell checking in Gmail composer) is deselecting the option in Tools -> Options -> Advanced -> "Check my spelling as I type".

In the menu, Tools > Preferences you have Automatic substitution (make sure it's checked). There you can enter words you want to have automatically changed. This would mainly be used for common misspellings, as it requires you to enter all the corrections yourself. I don't think there's a auto-correct function as on your phone, which automatically ...

One way to have your "dictionary" include spellings from other languages is to translate the document into the language you desire. This will create a copy of the document in the language you choose. Though this way may produce some weird results, I find that once translated the "spell check" does provide corrections with the translated language, though it ...

For the French language, Druide Antidote and Cordial are the best (spell + grammar + conjugation checkers) and have integration for Google Chrome. But they aren't free. Otherwise, Spell Checker for Chrome is a free extension that supports French. For Polish, you can try using the built-in spell checker in Chrome (you can even provide your own dictionary, ...

The easiest way is to change your proofing language is to set it under File menu. In this case you'll use the same document, without translation. You can pick the spelling checker of your choice (even dialects like Deutsch, Schweizerdeutsch) that Google supports.

Editing my post, Google just released the Personal Dictionary. Once I see documentation in the support files I will post. In your Google Doc, go to Tools > Personal Dictionary and all of your spelling additions will be stored there. You will be able to add or remove custom words. To add a word, right click the underlined word and select Add to personal ...

I'm the developer. It supposed to work, but it's pretty buggy, on Chrome particularly. There is an open issue on GitHub about that and on ACE repo as well. As a workaround, you can use the "Light mode" (Settings>Advanced) which will replace the ACE editor by a textarea.

On the mobile version (Android 9) Slack pulls from phone's dictionary, including any words you have added. "Salesforce" (and all major brand names) are already included, but after adding "Salesfarce" to the android dictionary Slack did not error highlight that word. On the windows slack client the system dictionary found at %AppData%\Microsoft\Spelling\en-...

I think TheBrenny is onto something there. There is a way to get access to the content itself and edit it but it's difficult and would have a pretty big delay. You can take a look at add-ons API for google docs and on the "Things you can't do" section, it somewhat says this. Google addons Documentation Also for docs events, if you wanted to do it directly ...

It can be considered difficult to rewrite the code that allows Grammarly to work on sites like Google Docs. When you “Inspect Element” on the Google Docs text area, you’ll find that it’s not actually a <textarea> element. In fact, it’s multiple wrappers of divs with one that is triggered to listen on key events to allow input. The issue that I believe ...

According Grammarly Support, it doesn't support at this point, but you can use their online app to check it. I think they will support in near future.

No, I'm afraid except for adding words manually, there is no way to customize the dictionary used by Google Docs.

Putting "quotes" around the specific word you don't want Google Search to assume spelling corrections for seems to have an effect.
