I have read and now seen with my own instance that the spell checker no longer works. Can anyone direct me on how to activate aspell or pspell?
Please check the settings From Settings > Site administration > Plugins > text editors > TinyMCE editor > General settings and Check spelling (both)
Thanks for the quick reply! When I switch over to pspell I keep getting this error when I check the spelling on a page.
PSpell support not found in PHP installation.
Any idea on how to fix this?
"As of php 5.3. Pspell is no longer supported/bundled. Instead you can use the enchant which is bundled by default in 5.3."
Your version of PHP?
Is your Moodle instance hosted on a Linux?
"To use spell-checking within the editor, you MUST have aspell 0.50 or later installed on your server, and you must specify the correct path to access the aspell binary. On Unix/Linux systems, this path is usually /usr/bin/aspell, but it might be something else."

Thank you for your help.
We added aspell to the server and the path is correct, but still I receive the same error "PSpell support not found in PHP installation."
Any tricks I should do?
Hi, Sakshi and all
I have the same issue. I would like to use a spell check integrated into the moodle. I followed Sakshi's instruction above, but aspell? does not seem to be working.
The reason why I need a spell check (wiggly red lines) within my moodle (on my server) is that the main devices my students use are android tablets and ipads. Strangely, the mobile web browsers (including Chrome, native android browser, and safari on ipads) do not come with their own web spell checkers, which is very strange because the desktop versions of these browsers come with spell checkers. Also, these mobile devices have spell checkers for device applications but do not work with websites/web applications (online text editors).
So, I would appreciate it if anyone can help me install or turn on a spell checker for moodle.
Anybody, any idea?
I wonder if anybody can point me to a right direction on this issue of the spell checker..
