You may use a function in Microsoft Word to check your spelling as you type to make sure all the words are spelled correctly.
If Microsoft Term doesn’t recognize a word, you might occasionally need to add it to the dictionary.
There are two ways to add a new term to the dictionary in Microsoft Word.
