“Handheld Electronic Device and Method for Performing Optimized Spell Checking During Text Entry by Providing a Sequentially Ordered Series of Spell-Check Algorithms” was invented by Vadim Fux (Waterloo, Canada) and Dan Rubanovich (Toronto).
According to the abstract released by the U.
S. Patent & Trademark Office: “A handheld electronic device includes a reduced QWERTY keyboard and is enabled with a disambiguation routine that is operable to disambiguate text input. In addition to identifying and outputting representations of language objects that are stored in the memory and that correspond with a text input, the device is able to perform a spell check routine during input of a text entry. The spell check routine subjects a text entry to a sequentially ordered series of spell-check algorithms and ceases subjecting the text entry to further spell-check algorithms upon identification of a predetermined quantity of spell-check language objects.” The patent was filed on April 5, 2006, under Application No. 11/398,222. site online spell check
