im no PD expert, but maybe one avenue worth investigating is finding the
appropriate software (hopefully something open-source) that does the
word recognition and spell checking then getting that to send control
data to PD via netsend / netreceive.
Perl seems to be the obvious candidate for its text munging
capabilities, and theres some simple code on the pure-data.org site for
a perl client that can talk to PD.
just an idea.
