Hi,

I am using English language for radspell control. Spell checker is suggesting different words like 'escuage', 'isagoge', 'ascogonia' and etc for the wrongly spelled word 'askign'. But it is not returning the exact match ‘asking’. Problem is reproducible with radspell demo application also. Please us the below link to reproduce the issue.

Demo link: http://demos.telerik.com/aspnet-ajax/spell/examples/whatsnew/defaultcs.aspx

But I am getting the exact word (asking) when the wrongly spelled word is ‘asknig’ or ‘asikng’

Is there any way to get the exact match where the wrongly spelled word is ‘askign’?

Thank you,
Vaidya.

Hi Vaidya,

My suggestion is to try the Custom Google spellcheck provider of RadSpell.

Another approach is to enable "EditDistanceProvider" with EditDistance="2", e.g.

<telerik:RadSpell SpellCheckProvider="EditDistanceProvider" EditDistance="2"  .../>

Kind regards,

Hi Rumen,

Thanks for the quick response.
As you suggested EditDistanceProvider is resolving our issue.

Currently default radspell check provider (TelerikProvider) is in use in our product and this product is in use by various customers with different languages from past couple of years. I would like to know the impact on performance, testing and use cases for different languages if I change the provider from default to EditDistanceProvider.

Once again thanks for the inputs on this issue.

Regards,
Vaidya.

Hi Vaidya,

We do not have statistics which provider is faster but the Phonetic provider works only with languages that support phonetic spellchecking. The EditDistance provider works with all languages and you should not experience performance problems with it.
