PyEnchant is a spellchecking library for Python, based on the excellent Enchant library.
PyEnchant combines all the functionality of the underlying Enchant library with the flexibility of Python and a nice “Pythonic” object-oriented interface. It also aims to provide some higher-level functionality than is available in the C API.
Here’s a quick sample of PyEnchant in action:
>>> import enchant >>> d = enchant.Dict("en_US") >>> d.check("Hello") True >>> d.check("Helo") False >>> d.suggest("Helo") ['He lo', 'He-lo', 'Hello', 'Helot', 'Help', 'Halo', 'Hell', 'Held', 'Helm', 'Hero', "He'll"] >>>
In general, PyEnchant will not work out of the box after having been installed with pip. See the Installation section for more details.
