Emacs spell check


It is essential when doing writing that you have some way to check your spelling errors. Especially if your someone like me that makes them frequently.

What to do?

  1. Specify in your config a location to a spell checking program.

(setq ispell-program-name "C:/SGZ_Pro/z-Apps_Drivers/Hunspell/hunspell-1.3.2-3-w32-bin/bin/hunspell.exe")

  1. Restart emacs
  2. Now to launch emacs spell checking programming you do M-x flyspell-mode

Now emacs will highlight the words you misspelled and with [s you can go backwards in misspelled words and with ]s You can go forward in misspelled words. Then z= to give a prompt of correct words that can be used to replace the misspelled words
