Prevent Jira from sending an emails for specific edits to an issue

I like that JIRA sends email notifications when an issue is edited- most of the time. When I change "there" to "their" in a comment and everyone on the team get an unnecessary email and a reminder of my embarrassing grammar skills- not so much.

Would it be possible to set something up where when end users make an edit they are given an option to not trigger an email notification?

Obviously users could abuse this, but I'm OK with that possible disadvantage.

This widget could not be displayed.

It all depends on your notification scheme. You can control who gets notifications on which actions and also different notification scheme for each project. For " issue comment edited " you  can give a small group or a project role rather than all the JIRA users.  

But is there a way to allow the user who is making the comment opt out of sending an email notification?
