Correcting Business name misspellings

Stack Overflow Asked by Jonathan Rauscher on August 2, 2020

I have come up with a unique problem. Currently, there are multiple ways to spellcheck and correct misspelled words, usually through the use of a dictionary or phonetics via a dictionary. However, business names are usually not discoverable in a standard English dictionary.

With this said, is there a solution out there or that can be crafted that could be used to take a list of misspelled company names and correct them? I’ve tried searching for a list of companies to match with but to no avail.

One Answer

The only way that I can think of right now is adding the words to spell checking like below;

 addCorrection(sp, "Smiht" = "Smith")
