Enable Auto Spell Corrector

A search for "moniter" on most search clients will fetch zero results. But if a user, on realizing his or her mistake, looks up "monitor" next then SearchUnify can infer that "moniter" is "monitor" misspelled. Once a deduction has been made, SearchUnify will automatically correct each instance of "moniter" in subsequent sessions.

Detect Incorrect Queries

But the mystery is: How does a search client distinguish a correct query from a misspelled one? 

For straightforward terms that are misspelled, such as "komputer" and "queuee", there are standard dictionaries to take care of them. A much bigger and pertinent problem for businesses is to find a search engine that will identify and correct the jargon used in their field. For instance, oAuth and 256-byte TLI for an organization. SearchUnify offers a solution.

Once set up, Enable Auto Spell Correcter rummages through select content fields to learn jargon and offer relevant suggestions when an employee or customer misspells a query. Sticking with the example, if all the products developed or sold by an organization are in Database (content source) > Inventory (content type) > Products (content field), then a SearchUnify admin can connect Enable Auto Spell Correcter with Products. That's all it's needed for Did You Mean to recognize that 256-bit TLI is incorrect and fetch five extra search results on the first page with the correct query, 256-byte TLI.

Expand Dictionary of In-House Terminology

To the admins relief, once a connection has been established, Enable Auto Spell Corrector keeps expanding and updating the dictionary with each crawl of the content source.
