    We are trying to use the spell checking tool. We noted that while it detects the error, the correct word is seldom in the list of possible words. We have set the attributes correctly and can even reproduce the problem using the spell checker for English on the Telerik website. To reproduce the problem, try the following sentences:

    1.       This is a test where the wodr is spelt wrong.  ----- wodr is detected as bad spelling and many options are suggested as corrections, but the most obvious where just the last 2 letters are in the wrong order is no. The option “word” is not in the list of possible corrections.

    2.       This is a tets where the word is spelt wrong. ------ tets is also detected as bad spelling, but “test” is not suggested as a possible correction.

    It seems to me that the algorithm is incorrect if it can suggest so many possible corrections with many different letters that are not in the word, but it does not suggest the word where the letter order is typed incorrectly, which is a frequent error users would make.

    Please advise.
