Spelling check does not work on Word online.

Copper Contributor

Hello members of the community,


About a week ago my automatic spelling check stopped working. So now I don't see the red and blue lines under misspelled words or wrong grammar.

Somehow I can't seem to fix this problem, not even with help from the helpdesk.


I changed the document language multiple times, as well as switching the spelling check on/off-box under the review tab multiple times. All of those settings are now set up as they should.

I tried this on different devices and different browsers with no succes.

When switching to another microsoft-account the spelling check does work however. So it seems this problem is account related.


It would really help me out if someone knows what to do.
