Microsoft Adds Spelling Improvements to Bing Search

We have all had the problem of looking for a certain website or specific product and don’t know the proper spelling, causing search delays and frustration. Microsoft has been working to vastly improve the spelling and syntax usage of its Bing Search to make running a search a more productive and enjoyable experience.

Microsoft's Bing Speller can sense this and recognize that "sea" is supposed to be "see" and "reel" is meant to be "real". It can then produce the correct search result instead of one that might bring up results that link to fish-related websites.
