SUMMARY

 

This article provides information on how to increase the precision of the Plus Pack server side spell check.

CONFIGURATION

 

There is a registry entry available which will enable an increase in the precision of the Plus Pack server-side spell check.  The values range from 0 to 100 with the default set to 30.   Messageware recommends a value of 50. This suggestionsprecision value needs to be applied to the Plus Pack registry key on the server on which the Plus Pack is installed.

 

NOTE: Increasing the precision will increase the Spell Check processing time.  The increased time taken will be environment specific and you may need to test a few values to find the appropriate level that will provide you with both accuracy and timeliness.  This is a global setting and will therefore be applied for all languages supported by the Plus Pack.

 

In addition, there is a registry entry; maxsuggestions; available to limit the number of suggestions offered by the Plus Pack server-side spell check; this may assist in decreasing the time required to process the spell check requests.  The following steps indicate how to add these two values to the Registry.
