3.2.x Provide spell checking functionality

User agents provide spell checking functionality for text created inside the user agent (level AA).

Users with various disabilities benefit from the features found in spell checkers today when composing text.  It is commonplace to create significant amounts of content inside a user agent today for tasks such as email, social networking and web-based productivity applications such as word processors.  The intent of this success criteria is to ensure that users with disabilities can easily correct spelling errors when composing text.

Amanda is dyslexic and frequently spells words incorrectly.  She is able to correct words when alerted to the errors.  She navigates to her web-based email application and composes a new message.  The user agent alerts her to spelling errors as she is typing and she quickly corrects the mistakes and sends an error free message.
