Cheap/Free Spell Checker for VB6

Posted on 2007-10-21

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.
