    FF and Waterfox have spell checkers as well. But! only in the one language! The same would be seen with any other browser including Edge.

    I would tend to immediately suspect the Outlook app you have there also includes a spelling checking tool and is apparently linked to language packs already present on the local system that would be what sees instant correction in order to be able to move from one language to another that quickly.
    No, the same would not be seen in all browsers, spell check in multiple languages. Spell check yes, multiple languages not.

    The Outlook Web App, also known as OWA is not the same as desktop app Outlook, nor is it the same than outlook.com. It is its own web app, working in a browser not on my local machine therefore it should not have and most probably has not any connection to language packs installed on my system.

    Then you are seeing instantaneous web based access to a language data base. Since outlook is web based you will likely find that on the same MS servers. The varying browsers would be connected to their own home based servers while in use. I highly doubted it would be anything ISP based.

    Why would Windows (MS) app access the web, when database is already on the user PC?
    Spell checking database is simple, text file of words, added when user adds language simple typing tools.

    For now it is working in Mail app and Edge. Didn't check all other MS apps capable of text input, but should be working.

    It doesn't work with desktop apps, like Worpad.

    Just my observation (and Kari's, obviously).

    Edit: dictionary location:

    Code:
    C:\Users\User\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Spelling

    Is anyone suffering from a bug plaguing me for at least 3-4 last preview releases: cannot sign in with PIN, cannot access Settings>Accounts>Sign-in options (just loads), see nothing in netplwiz etc. I can sign in with a password, though.

    That's only good for the language(s) installed as far as language packs. When going to use web based apps those don't simply go and access anything under the user account on anyone's machine locally but have this stuff in the clouds. When you have Outlook installed locally then that might be what would access the Roaming section there.

    Of course. That is what we were talking about. Mail app (not Outlook or Office or anything else) and also Edge seems to use local dictionaries. These are not language packs (which affect also display language), but simple language tools.

    Edit: OneNote app is also capable of switching spelling language according to keyboard selection:

    When first seeing Windows go on you would expect to find that in the default language until installing additional language packs. For most local apps like the browser and mail app installed locally which I had been pointing out earlier the spelling check would be instantaneous from the local point.

    For what Kari was mentioning however was strictly being web where this would be handled strictly by the cloud based instead. I was first thinking local based as you refer to there but had to take the second look when he mentioned everything he was working with was web orientated.

    Likewise if you are on a social network and had a spell check there that wouldn't be accessing anything locally but also be web based. As for cell phones and other portable devices other then Windows Phone you would be definitely in the cloud there. You can sure the other OSs have their own data web or otherwise.

    You can be right. But on the other hand, spell checking language is selected by switching local keyboard. I don't think it really matters for MS, if it is done locally or in the cloud. Nor has it any advantages, if the feature is cloud based.

    We are talking strictly about MS apps. I didn't seen this behavior before. And is about time we finally got it.

    Although, I would prefer, if language switching would be language based, not keyboard based. We are switching typing languages, but typing on the same keyboard.

    Typing on the same keyboard? Not in all places! Not everybody uses the same alphabetical system! While many of are accustomed to using the typical 102 or 104 keyboards some places require an entire revision.

    As for spell checking that is far from anything new. IE has had now for some time as well as the 3rd party ieSpell. I know IE 8 had the spell checker option for Windows 7. In fact Spell Check was available in OE for XP years back.
