How can we improve Azure Search?

Allow handling spelling errors in search "Did you mean ''?"

It would be really nice to have spell check and auto correct as part of search.

    I'm looking into building a feature similar to this for our site. Right now, I'm going down a proof of concept test with a mix of fuzzy logic for typos and possibly looking at the suggesters for suggested words. Having this baked into a Did You Mean feature would be great.

    We were evaluating Azure search for our Enterprise needs; and it was surprising that the spell checking / typo handling ( a feature that we take for granted - thanks to internet search engines) is not build in.

    Suggestion: While you are working towards implementing this procedure; can you update the documentation with your recommendation on how to handle the scenario in its current state.
