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

I tried it but it doesn't seem to have any effect. – Paul R Jul 23 '10 at 9:21

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

The answer is

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

But you can use this tinyspell check program . its totally free.
