Hi Madison, welcome to the Community!

Confluence Cloud doesn't have a native spellchecker. We rely on the native browser spellchecker - here's some info about the built-in spellchecker for various browsers:

Do you notice spellcheck working on other sites, for example, here in Community? If not, sounds like the spellcheck in your browser may have become disabled.

Cheers,
Daniel

For answer completeness, I'll mention that there is an addon in the marketplace for spellcheck in Confluence Server. I see that you're on Cloud, but this might be useful for someone on Server hitting this question from Google.

Hello!

Cutting straight to the chase, Confluence does not have a spellchecker natively. The possibilities I can see are these:

  1. We are using the browser native spellchecker and for some reason, it stopped working
  2. We have a plugin that allows us to have the spellchecking powers in Confluence

 

If you happen to use Grammarly, there is a feature request connected to this browser plugin:

The plugin for spellchecking, however, is available solely for Confluence Server. For anyone on the server platform, you can check this on the plugin pages:

 

In case you are using the browser’s spellchecker, you can check here for guidance with the feature for Firefox and chrome:

 

I hope this helps you out @Madison.Luu ! Let us hear from you.
