HelpServer is equipped with a lexicon-based spelling checker. To determine if a word is spelled correctly, it checks whether the word is in a large lexicon of words known to be valid. If the word is found in the lexicon, it is considered correctly spelled. If the word is not found, it is considered to be misspelled.Further more, the spelling checker supports automatic corrections while typing. Auto corrections are also defined in the lexicons.
There are three types of lexicons.
General-purpose lexicons in American, British (international), and Canadian English are the default lexicons. You can purchase additional lexicons in 11 European languages. These lexicons are called main lexicons. They usually contain 100,000 or more of the most common words and cannot be modified.
Domain lexicons supplement the main lexicons. The spelling checker is equipped with an English domain lexicon containing technical and Internet-related terms.
In addition to the main lexicons in English, you can purchase supplements containing words related to jurisprudence, law, criminology, law enforcement, anatomy, diseases, health care, generic and trademark drug names, and medical research.
The custom lexicons are modifiable. These too supplement the main lexicons. These contain words that are not likely to be included in the main lexicons.There are two types of custom lexicons.
Personal custom lexicons.
This type of custom lexicon contains words and auto corrections that are personal to an author.
Common custom lexicons.
This type of custom lexicon contains words and auto corrections that are specific to the entire company.
