Is a spell checker available for the WYSIWYG editor in Confluence 3.3 or 3.5?

Is a spell checker available for the WYSIWYG editor in Confluence 3.3 or 3.5? We are currently at 3.3 but can upgrade to the latest version if necessary.

thanks

Confluence does not have a built-in spell checker. Most of the popular browsers – Chrome, Firefox, Safari – have their own spell checkers or extensions are available.

Which then spell checks any site you use...

What browser are you using?

I use Google Chrome which does spell check automatically.

See this ticket for other suggestions: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONF-1212

Check out the new spell check plugin [Spellproof for Confluence|https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/au.net.bunney.spellproof.plugins.spellproof-confluence/server/overview] now available on Atlassian's Marketplace.

 

You can check spelling and grammar on your Confluence pages in three different languages - English, French and German. 

Sadly, Spellproof only appears to be in UK English, even in our US installation. It says US is available but there's no way to select settings.
