speed, high capacity spell checker for ASP or ASP.NET applications.
capability to your Web forms and ASP and .NET based applications with
Wintertree Spelling Server. Wintertree Spelling Server has the power
you need to spell check text areas in Web/HTML forms on high-traffic
Web sites and intranets which use IIS on 32-bit Windows systems (NT,
2000, XP, Vista, Windows 7, 2003 Server, etc.).
Spell-checking is CPU intensive. Slow, inefficient spelling checkers
tie up the CPU while they run. A spelling checker that takes one
second to check the text submitted by a client takes one second of
CPU time away from other applications running on the server
applications that could be retrieving pages, updating a database, or
processing orders. Multiply that by 10, 100, or 1000 clients, and the
result is timeouts, "server not available" messages, and
user frustration. To meet the CPU load, you may be forced to add yet
The demands made by multiple clients, 24 hours a day, seven days a
week, may be too great for competitors' spelling products that were
intended for simple desktop applications operated by a single user
or, even worse, use unreliable COM interfaces to desktop word
processing applications. Wintertree Spelling Server was designed from
the ground up to meet the exacting demands of Web servers, where
hundreds or even thousands of clients may request a spelling check
simultaneously. At the same time, Wintertree Spelling Server's design
keeps its use of server resources (CPU, memory, and disk space) to a
minimum, leaving more available for other server-based applications.
Wintertree Spelling Server is a dedicated, independent,
high-performance spelling engine for ASP and ASP.NET. You can call
Wintertree Spelling Server from your form-processing applications to
check the spelling of text entered in text areas and text boxes on
your forms. A suite of included example applications
all with complete source code you can cut and paste
makes integration with your applications a snap.

Checks spelling at over 450,000 words per second
on average server hardware this means less server CPU time
processing spelling requests, so your server has more time available
to perform other tasks. Plus, your clients get their results faster.
No limit on the number of simultaneous clients.
Wintertree Spelling Server handles requests from multiple clients
simultaneously, with no fixed limit on the number of concurrent clients.
No blocking required.
Wintertree Spelling Server's design supports concurrent
spelling-check requests from multiple clients with no need for
internal or external locking or semaphores and no need for session-
or client-level initialization. This means higher throughput for
faster turn-around time and reduced CPU load.
Works independently. No other software required.
Wintertree Spelling Server contains its own spelling engine, and does
not require nor does it use Microsoft Word or any other software,
unlike many competing products. This simple approach yields a more
reliable, robust solution, fewer configuration headaches, and vastly
High-quality dictionaries included.
Wintertree Spelling Server comes with superb 100,000-word American,
British, and Canadian English dictionaries with comprehensive
coverage of general words, contractions, abbreviations, and
capitalized proper names. Words in the dictionary have been carefully
selected to provide complete coverage of average English vocabulary
and minimize spurious error reports.
Each spelling request can check spelling in a different language.
Dictionaries in 11 Western European languages, plus medical and legal
supplements, are available separately
from Wintertree Software.
Clients can add their own words to a user dictionary at run-time.
Words in the user dictionary may be offered as suggestions for
You can create any number of custom dictionaries containing
application-specific words and make them available for use by all clients.
Comprehensive suite of example applications included.
VBScript (ASP), C# (ASP.NET), and Visual Basic.NET (ASP.NET) source
code for example applications are included that demonstrate typical
uses of Web-based spellchecking. Click here

Client/Server spell checking.
Although the spelling checker runs entirely on the server, Wintertree
Spelling Server's flexible configuration options support off-loading
user interaction to the client via an included applet or pop-up HTML
form, for true Client/Server spell checking.
Make the user interface look and act the way you want. Appearance of
forms returned to the client is determined by scripts and HTML
template files that can be edited using your favorite HTML editor.
Behavior of the user interface is controlled by easily modifiable
look and feel you want.
Intelligent suggestions for misspelled words.
Wintertree Spelling Server can locate suggested replacements using
typographical (looks like) matching, phonetic (sounds like) matching,
or both. Suggestions are returned in order of decreasing probability
of correctness. The first offered suggestion is usually the correct
replacement for words containing a single error.
Wintertree Spelling Server detects Incorrect capitalization (e.g., canada
instead of Canada). Case sensitivity can be disabled if
necessary via a simple run-time option setting. Dictionaries included
with Wintertree Spelling Server contain correct capitalization forms.
Wintertree Spelling Server can automatically or conditionally correct
common misspellings (e.g., replace recieve with receive).
A dictionary containing hundreds of common misspellings and their
correct replacements is included. Abbreviations can also be expanded
using this feature e.g., replace WSI with Wintertree
Doubled word detection.
Wintertree Spelling Server can detect repeated words (e.g., Paris in
the the spring).
Two editions available.
Wintertree Spelling Server is available in two editions to meet a
broad range of site requirements and budgets: The XE edition is ideal
for high-traffic production Internet and intranet sites where maximum
throughput and minimum response time and CPU load is a must. The
lower-priced DE edition is suitable for low to moderate traffic sites
and for use on development, testing, QA, and staging servers. Click
