Custom Dictionary

Add words to the OU Campus dictionary to remove them from spell check results. Level 9 and 10 users can add words via page check or final check, and you can enable this setting for users levels 0 through 8. Level 10 users can edit and delete words in Setup > Custom Dictionary.

Custom dictionaries are available in English, Spanish, French, Italian, and Portuguese. Each language has its own dictionary for the site and account level, which function independently of each other. Any words in the account dictionary count for all sites in the account, but words in the site dictionary only apply to that site. When a spell check runs, it uses both the account and site dictionaries, and if a word is found in either, it is not marked as misspelled.

This dictionary is also used for the OU Insights module. The default dictionary that spell checks use is decided via the locale setting.
