Misspellings are words that could not be found in Siteimprove's dictionary. These words can include product names, technical jargon, and slang. When a word has been flagged as a misspelling by our Quality Assurance module, Siteimprove will suggest a list of possible correct spelling alternatives. Suggestions can be words that are similar to the word that was considered a misspelling or the correct spelling of the word. 

If you are not making corrections yourself, you can highlight preferred suggestions by clicking on the suggestion so it is easy for other users to see what corrections need to be made. When the suggestion has been clicked on it will highlight in green. 

You can also add your own suggestions by hovering with your mouse over the misspelling. An Edit button will then appear where you can type in your suggestion. Remember to click on Add for the suggestion to appear in the range of misspelling suggestions. 

Words that have been previously added to your dictionary will also appear as suggestions for misspelled words.
