This class can check the spelling of text and suggest corrections.

It can takes a given string and lookup an internal dictionary to determine if the string words are spelled correctly.

For words supposedly misspelled the class computes the levenshtein factor between the misspelled word and the words in the dictionary to determine which one looks more similar, so it can present it as spelling correction.

PHP has several extensions for checking the spelling of texts. However, you need to have them installed to use them.

This class implements a spell checking solution in pure PHP, so it does not require any additional extensions.

Additionally it can provide suggestions for misspelled words.
