GNU Aspell spell-checker
  3 reviews

GNU Aspell is a spell-checker which can be used either as a standalone application or embedded in other programs. Its main feature is that it does a much better job of suggesting possible spellings than just about any other spell-checker available for the English language, including Ispell and Microsoft Word. It also has many other technical enhancements over Ispell such as using shared memory for dictionaries and intelligently handling personal dictionaries when more than one Aspell process is open at once.

Aspell is designed to be a drop-in replacement for Ispell.

Works. @ Penumbra, according to SourceForge, Aspell is very much still in development. At the time I write this the latest release was 2013-04-30, although is out of date in this respect..

Author got tired with it, so no further improvement. Buggy.
