When we type in a text field on a website, the only spelling correction service available is the offline dictionary of the web browser. This dictionary is very limited and does not give very good spelling correction. If you want a better spelling correction service, then you can enable the spelling error resolution service in the Google Chrome browser. It is the same correction service used by the Google search website itself.
Google Chrome browser gives you two ways to enable or disable the spelling error resolution service. The first method is very easy. Just visit any website of your choice that has a text field where you can type. One such page is TrishTech.com’s feedback page. Right-click in any of the the text fields and then select Spell checker options → Ask Google for Suggestions as shown in the following picture.
You can follow the same process all over again in order to disable the spelling error resolver service. The second method for enabling the spelling error resolution service is through the Chrome settings as detailed in the following instructions:
- Open the Chrome settings by typing chrome://settings in the location bar.
- Type spelling in the search box to search for all settings related to spelling.
- Check the checkbox labeled Use a web service to help resolve spelling errors.
- It would show you information about this service and what data it can send to Google. You can click on the Enable button to enable this service.
- That’s it. You have enabled the Google web service for spelling error resolution. Now you should get better spelling suggestions as you type in a web form.
