How Do I Disable SCAYT in CKEditor?

This website contains links to software which is either no longer maintained or will be supported only until the end of 2019 (CKFinder 2). For the latest documentation about current CKSource projects, including software like CKEditor 4/CKEditor 5, CKFinder 3, Cloud Services, Letters, Accessibility Checker, please visit the new documentation website.

If you look for an information about very old versions of CKEditor, FCKeditor and CKFinder check also the CKEditor forum, which was closed in 2015. If not, please head to StackOverflow for support.

If you want to completely disable the Spell Check As You Type (SCAYT) feature in CKEditor, remove the scayt plugin using the removePlugins configuration setting.

config.removePlugins = 'scayt';

If you want to leave SCAYT available, but prevent the feature from being turned on automatically on loading the editor, set the scayt_autoStartup configuration setting to false. This is the default value for CKEditor configuration.

config.scayt_autoStartup = false;
