Join Tony Harmer for an in-depth discussion in this video Checking spelling, part of Creating Ebooks for the Kindle.
…Hopefully, when you produced your original manuscripts,…you will have spell checked at that point.…But, especially if your editing, inside of a program like Sigil or Calibre.…And you've made your change here and there.…It's still worth taking that extra step…of quality control, and checking the spelling.…It's very easy in Sigil, and it's very much…like any spell checker that you've probably used before.…To access it, you've got this small ABC tick icon at the top here.…
You can click that, and the Spell Checker will open, like so.…It will show you, the words it considers…misspelled and the number of instances of them.…For example, if I choose an ulster there just here.…Where it thinks that could well be luster for example and so on.…There aren't actually any spelling errors in here at all, this is using an older…version of English and to stay true to the original, I'm not going to make any…modifications, but you can see that you…can either use the replacement there or you…could have caused type your own replacement inside…
