Unfortunately, Skype doesn't have a spell checking feature available yet.   Maybe sometime in the future but I'm not holding my breath.




Please note: I do not respond to requests for help via Private Message.

For this purpose I use ursa spell checker. It really helps me even through I'm communicating in my native language, because I always do some typing mistakes.

Ursa looks good, but it is not free

Ursa Spell Checker for Skype 2.1 IS free

 

a built-in spell checker does not seem to be high on Skype's priority list

 

it is, after  all, chat, where abbreviations and acronyms are commonplace, and typos should be tolerated

 

and have a look at all the languages that would have to be supported
