Hi,

 

Since the new spell checking engine was rolled out, both Google Chrome and Edge can only spell check in Windows 's system language. 
The blog instructions are straightforward, and my system has the languages installed:

The browser settings are OK:

But only the primay Windows language is being spell checked - the one used in the System User Interface.

Edge is on Version 83 stable:

System Settings: languages are installed correctly according to blog post:

According to blog post, if language is not available, it should fall back to hunspell, the old engine, but it is not working.
