New ActionScript and Flex Spell Checking Engine on Adobe Labs

Adobe’s Linguistic Services team recently launched a project code named Squiggly on Adobe Labs. From the project homepage:

Squiggly is a spell checking engine for Adobe® Flash® Player and Adobe AIR®. The Squiggly library allows you to easily add spell checking functionality in any Flex 3 based text control. The distribution package consists of a utility for building your own spelling dictionaries, a sample English dictionary, an ActionScript package that checks individual words for spelling accuracy, and sample code that demonstrates “check as you type” functionality.

The rest of the details can be found on Labs along with a simple demo.
