I am looking for a program that runs in any program on Windows that autocorrects common misspellings (like iOS's keyboard).

I would like:

  • it to be free
  • it to automatically auto-correct (in case that wasn't obvious ;)
  • it to be kept up to date (with common misspellings) automatically
  • it to run in any program (or as many as possible)
  • it to run on Windows 7 64 bit
  • 1
    This seems like a very sophisticated algorithm for correcting mistyped sentences, but I don't know if it's been integrated in any program as an "autocorrect everywhere" thing: github.com/wolfgarbe/SymSpellCompound – mic Jan 16 '18 at 20:25

You can use AutoHotkey (free, open-source, Windows), something along the lines of this script, which automatically auto-correct and should run in most program. (original source).

The main idea behind the script is that ::campain::campaign in AHK will cause any mistyped "campain" to be retyped as "campaign".

Note that Windows 8 provides a spell check feature throughout the entire system. :
