How do I remove wrongly accepted spellings from the spellchecker?

Posted

The spellchecker has recently stopped highlighting 'teh' as a misspelling of 'the'. I frequently make this and other typing errors when using the browser, because i have to look at the keyboard when typing quickly and rely on the spellcheck to highlight the times when my fingers are not so well coordinated. At first, i thought it was a Facebook issue, but it appears on other sites where i make manual inputs.

Hello Trevor,

Would you please take a look at this article and scroll down to the section :

"Removing a word you have accidentally added"

Even though you may not be aware of the fact that you have added those misspelled words; at least you'll be able to remove them.

I hope this will work for you.
