This article explains how to use the spell check feature in Google Docs, the online word processor application integrated into Google Drive. Spell checking is available in different languages and is really easy to use.
Use Google Docs Spell Check Feature
Open the document that you'd like to spell check. Click File
, and select the language in which the document is drafted from the drop-down list.
Now, go to Tools
. Google Docs will check for errors and prompt you to make any necessary corrections. Click the Change
button to correct a misspelled word and move to the next suggestion:
The Google Docs spell check is not fail-proof, and sometimes, the proposed corrections won't match the context of the text. In such cases, you can click Ignore

Click the x
button once you are done with your corrections.
