Does this work?

For those of you using Skype for Mac, you can switch on spell checking in instant messages by right-clicking the message box, and choosing Spelling and Grammar > Check Spelling While Typing

For Windows I would recommend Ursa Spell Checker. I use it for a few languages. It works automatically. Very useful prog

Unfortunately, Skype doesn't have a spell checking feature available yet.
Maybe sometime in the future but I'm not holding my breath.
