Hi,

I'm looking for an activex spell checker to ship with my VB6 project.  I've checked out a few e.g. WSPell and they seem a bit pricey $200 US.  I basically want to get hold of one that provides a simular dialog box to word with the options to change the spelling.  I'm aware that you can call word to do spell checking but I don't want to do that.

Why not try including the word dictionary itself. I am not sure whether I am right. but this seems to be easy and no any investments to be done. Better check whether these links help you
