ASP.net Spell Checking Options

My company has a website that we have created using Visual Studio 2010 working in asp.net and we would like the website to have the option of spell checking text boxes. In the past, for our windows forms applications we have been able to integrate with the Microsoft Word spell check that is installed on all our pc's to do the spell checking. Is there a way to use Word's spell checking through our website to spell check text boxes? I have tried this and so far, the issue stopping me seems to be being able to access the client pc's clipboard from the code running the website. If this is not possible, what recommendations do you have for 3rd party custom asp.net controls? Are there any (good) free ones? Any other suggestions for how to integrate spell check into our website would be appreciated.

Thanks for the answers. They were about what I was expecting to hear. We found another 3rd party solution (www.aspnetspell.com), very similar to the www.keyoti.com custom control that we are going to go with. We are going 3rd party here because it will be simpler to implement with no installations on the server (required for using word as a spell check), and has editable dictionary files (.dic's) instead of using google spell check (like your second suggestion). Thanks again!
