browser_spellcheck

One of the several spell checking options developers have available is to use the browser's native spell checker. browser_spellcheck handles this behavior. browser_spellcheck is not available in either Internet Explorer 8 or 9, as neither browser has native spell checker functionality.

Type: Boolean

Default Value: false

Possible Values: true, false

tinymce.init({
  selector: 'textarea',  // change this value according to your HTML
  browser_spellcheck: true
});
