This example, using Excel's spell checking, is already an example in the
distribution, but it's not really all that great. It can find the next
unknown word, but it doesn't suggest corrections, you can't train new
words, etc. So, true, it can find the misspelling (as well as any strange
words) but it can't help you once it finds them. I'd hope for something
that could be written (or exists) so that a popup of suggestions could be
produced, and so it can learn new words.
