Integrated spell checker for Umbraco

I'd avoided looking at spell checking in Umbraco as I thought it would quite time consuming.

I was wrong... Thanks to the excellent NetSpell and it's built in web ui demo, it only took about 30 minutes to hack something together.

Check out the screencast.

The checker works on dictionary files, so it will do languages other than English. I implemented it to check specific Umbraco fields, though it would be relatively simple to have it check all fields in a document type.

I'm hoping Niels will snap this one up and integrate it, as I'm not known for my UI design!

Next on the list is looking at NClassifier which Ismail found. I'm hoping that it will help me add some content intelligence to Umbraco - for example, auto suggesting keywords and document summaries.
