To the best of my knowledge, there is no built-in / bundled service in the RDBMS that does this. I've also looked for, without success, on any after-market products.

There are, of course, constraint checks which will compare your values against hard-coded strings; not what you wanted.

Perhaps an API could be used, also ask at MOS if you have a support agreement.

I've been using Oracle Forms for 25 years, and I've never seen or heard of a spell check feature, option or utility for Oracle Forms.  One of the reasons for this may be the fact that Oracle Forms does not give us any triggers at the level of an individual character or word.  The triggers in Oracle Forms are only at the level of the field/item or higher.  I'm sure that you could write a when-validate-item trigger in Oracle Forms that could pass the value of the field/item to a Java class that in turn could invoke a spell checker of some kind, but the challenge in Oracle Forms would be how or where to display the output from the spell checker.
