  2. Spell check offset incorrect if certain characters are in the text

    I haven't tested with other special characters but when an apostrophe is introduced into a string that is being checked the offset is thrown off by +2 for all tokens appearing after the apostrophe

  4. Improve spell checking of people names

    I have encountered some problems with the spell check API changing people names that are actually spelled correctly. Examples are Paskal & Nicolaas.
    This causes searches downstream in my app (using LUIS) to not work as expected because the changed name cannot be found. I have noticed similar issues with company names and some acronyms.
    Ideally similar functionality that exist in Microsoft Word would be nice. This allows the user to add words to the dictionary for future reference. I realize though that the Bing Spell Checker is based on a different architecture using Machine Learning etc. so this might…

  7. The API is not working in German (mkt=de-DE&mode=proof)

    The API is not working in German (mkt=de-DE&mode=proof)

    Response for the text 'Hollo, wrld!' and params = "mkt=en-US&mode=proof" is okay (see at the bottom), response for 'Hollo Weld!' params = "mkt=de-DE&mode=proof" is [].

    Correct answer for en-US:
    [{'offset': 0,
    'token': 'Hollo',
    'type': 'UnknownToken',
    'suggestions': [{'suggestion': 'Hello', 'score': 0.910459556342145},
    {'suggestion': 'Hollow', 'score': 0.863230438073279}]},
    {'offset': 7,
    'token': 'wrld',
    'type': 'UnknownToken',
    'suggestions': [{'suggestion': 'world', 'score': 0.910459556342145}]}]

  10. The API is auto-correcting certain numbers to currencies

    The service seems to be having some kind of training data bias for some inputs. Sending only numbers like 50000, 250000, 500000 etc., is returning $50,000, $250,000 and $500,000 respectively. This does not seem to happen for other numbers like 5000, 10000, etc. The service should never assume that a number denotes monetary value unless there is more context surrounding it.

  11. Fix the service to correct scenarios highlighted in your examples.

    Your examples show Stephen Spielberg being spell check corrected to Steven Spielberg. However, your example does not correct Stephen to Steven.

  12. Add the ability to train BSC on AD/AAD

    For spell check on names, it would be incredibly useful to train the service on an Active Directory (or AAD) model or an arbitrary model.

  15. Make Spell Check API behavior consistent with documentation

    The documentation (https://bingapis.portal.azure-api.net/docs/services/56e73033cf5ff80c2008c679/operations/56e73036cf5ff81048ee6727) suggests that the text should be in the request body. The API however wants the text as a query parameter named 'Text'

  16. The spell check API doesn't have an option to support multi word correction

    The spell check API doesn't have an option to support multiple word correction. For eg. 'air conditiner' returns 'conditioner' and not 'air conditioner'. A parameter setting in the url https://bingapis.azure-api.net/api/v5/spellcheck would help.

  17. Spell Check seems to fail if certain characters are in the text.

    I was wondering why my text was reported as having no errors, when I was deliberately putting errors in.

    After an hour of trial and error, it turns out that sometimes, the API doesn't like having a period and then a line-feed character in the url-encoded text. LF seems to be encoded as %0A.

    Here are the examples that had me isolate the issue:
    Text=teh%0Atxet
    Reports 2 errors (teh and txet)

    Text=teh.%0Atxet
    Reports 0 errors.

    I don't really need the %0A in my strings so I can just strip them out. Maybe other URLENCODING libraries handle the LF character differently.

  18. Grammatical check and or proactive sentence restructuring.

    For example, the Spell check API in it's current format still misses that a word at the start of the sentence should be capitalised, and if a word is not used in sentence where it should be (yes I missed the "a" before the word "sentence" here), I would like for that structure to be recognized and fixed within the context of the entire sentence.
