Some free online spell-check tools do not come with any added features other than checking for spelling errors, while others provide extra features such as grammar-check and word-count tools. Some online spell-check tools provide users the option to search dictionaries and thesauruses.
In addition, there are websites that allow users to spell check their written text even if it is composed in languages other than American English. Users may also be offered the option to check their written text for plagiarism, depending on which website they opt to use.
To use online spell-check tools and their extra features, users must typically copy the text to be checked, and then paste it into the provided box on the websites. Some websites provide users the option to check the boxes of the features they wish to use, while others provide separate buttons to click for each available option.
Most free online spell check websites do not require users to sign up for a free account to use the basic spell-check tool, but may require sign up to use extra features. Some websites only allow holders of a premium account to use the deluxe services and tools that are available, and the premium account may not be free.
