Articulate Storyline has a built-in dictionary and highlights the wrongly spelled word by a red underline, and we can correct the word by right clicking it and selecting the appropriate word from the list of words suggested by Storyline.

Well, we have a useful default feature in Storyline which enables us to create a new dictionary,so that we can add our own words.
