SCAYT Spell Check

The SCAYT option is only for those using the legacy editor. The modern (new) editor uses the built-in browser spell-check.

Spell check can be enabled by default under Settings > Basic. The spell checker tool in the editor is SCAYT, which stands for "spell check as you type".

The SCAYT feature allows you specify a variety of options, including:

  • Ignore All-Caps Words
  • Ignore Domain Names
  • Ignore Words with Mixed Case
  • Ignore Words with Numbers

You can also choose from the following languages:

  • American English (default)
  • Brazilian Portuguese
  • British English
  • Canadian English
  • Canadian French
  • Danish
  • Dutch
  • Finnish
  • French
  • German
  • Greek
  • Italian
  • Latin
  • Norwegian
  • Portuguese
  • Spanish
  • Swedish

It also allows for a user generated dictionary that is store in a browser cookie. Once too large for a cookie, you can store the dictionary in your library.  

Most modern browser have a built in spell checker, which is why the feature is off by default.
