It also allows you to search a particular word in the document that you know you’ve misspelled in the whole document. 

In Microsoft Word documents, Word’s spell check function is set to automatically check your spelling while you type. Errors in your document will have color-coded underlines reflecting your choices, like red for spelling errors, green for grammar errors, and blue for contextual spelling errors.
