Is this something new? When I uploaded a compilation/omnibus today, it spell checked it for me! I was even able to email myself a list of stuff I was horrified to see made it through the individual books' proofings.

I would like to see that. I wonder how it handles British vs American spellings. Foreign language - oooh how about Klingon? or German umlats. Does it pick up extra spaces before periods and commas? or homophones in the wrong place?

Hello from Amazon KDP!

The book "Mythical, The Series (Omnibus #1)" you recently submitted to KDP has possible spelling errors in your converted file. Consider correcting these and resubmitting.

Note: If you need to fix any of these potential typos, please do so in your digital manuscript and then upload the corrected file. We also recommend running spell-check if you have not done so. Learn more.

Here are the errors we recommend you address by correcting your manuscript:
The list is LONG. I use a lot of made up words cause it's fiction and what not.

But here's what one looked like in the list:

It didn't flag any of the Spanish words I had here and there. But the most bizarre was a totally made up name "Ketzkahtel" was not flagged, but the misspelling in one place, "Kaetzkahtel" was. Weird.

Huh. Gotta say, sounds like they built a spellchecker that's smarter than the average bear.

I wonder if this is a beta/random feature, because I haven't seen it!

I thought you folks were pulling legs when someone mentioned it the other day.

It was there on the last book I uploaded on the 23rd. There was one word, and it was a grammar issue. I was pleasantly surprised.

It was there when I uploaded the latest edited The 15th Star on December 19th. It only found one mistake, where I had left the s out of Mary Pickersgill's name.
It didn't blink at the dropped g's (slang) or the unusual names, so yes, it is smarter then your average spell checker.
