Hi-
I was wondering if it is possible to have a spell checker feature like google.com If someone types lets say Jorden, it will search it and say, wrong spelling try Jordan. Can this be done, and if so how? I appreciate any help with this. Thank you

You could do it if you have a spell check program that can be run in batch mode to give spelling corrections. You could then use <exec> to run it on the query and give the suggestion(s) back to the user.

We are an existing customer and are using Vortex for back end XML services that index our production database to service search requests from our application servers. We are NOT spidering web pages, and much of the help is written on the assumption that we are.

The product was installed a long time ago so I am just coming up to speed. So my questions may seem a little naive.

I am trying to create an Aspell-based spell check and incorporate suggestions and I do not understand how to use dowalk, just write Vortex scripts. As far as I can tell we don't have the web based interface installed at all. It seems like we can write a Vortex script to do just that; I have attempted to do so, but I am not having any success yet.

Thanks for any help you can provide.

I have been in contact with John, but so far have not heard any response. I have an open ticket number,

Yes I spoke to John. He was just away from the office.
I have a standalone script that is building the dictionaries now. I am now trying to figure out the usage of invoking spelling suggestions in a script.
