One? I know of several, though I suppose it depends on what you mean
by "decent" and "integrated". David Pilling provides
c) dictionary support used by !CrossStar and OvationPro (and maybe
other things?) As far as I know these are not the same as !Spell.
I have a feeling that Beebug once sold something as well.
There's also the CC !SpellMod module supplied with Impression Junior
and used in StrongED.
I have no idea how easy it is to integrate any of these with arbitrary
other applications. Is there by any chance a central RO SWI (set) that
any app could use to request a spelling check? I presume that none of
the current facilities support foreign languages well, or UniCode.
Jeremy C B Nicoll - my opinions are my own.
