Default Spell check problem

hi,
i am using office 2013, win 7 64 bit.
i have a problem with spell checker. it is working for me, but there is some words that it not fix.
it doesnt matter if i write in word or outlook.
for an example: i am writing an email :
hi, i want to buy a milk. that's it.
if i will write: hi, i want to buy a milk. thant it, it will not mark it as wrong.
there are a lots of words that it not fixed.
it usually happened on replay and forward, but not always.
i followed all the steps in google- for an example that link:
https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/970826
but it didn't fix it.


any idea why? i tried office 2013 and office 2016, i also tried to do it from another computer with another profile.
thanks,

It's hard to believe the spell-checker doesn't work for you on multiple versions of Office on different computers using different profiles unless you and/or your system administrator are seriously misconfiguring something.

Simply telling us it doesn't work isn't particularly helpful without telling us exactly what regional settings your computer uses and how the spell-check functions for Office, etc. are configured.

hi,
it doesnt matter which computer i am using. i also tried it from my home laptops. i have 2 laptops. 1- win 10- office 2013 , second win 7- office 2013.
when i type a sentences as:
i mass you , instead i miss you, it did not fix it.
or if i type thant it, instead of that's it. still not fix it.
there are another words that it didn't fix.

And which of those words do you expect to be 'fixed'? Since everything you've posted on this site has been in lower case, which has nothing to do with spell-checking but with poor grammar, it's impossible to know you think Word isn't doing correctly. As for:
Quote:
i mass you , instead i miss you, it did not fix it.
aside from the lack of capitals, every word in that line is a legitimate word. Hence, these are not spelling errors; they are typing errors. Similarly, Word will underline for checking but cannot correct, a word like 'thant', when you think it should be 'that's' because it's not apparent from what you type what the correct word really is - at best Word's spell-checker can offer some guesses as to what it might be.

I doubt any software would 'know' what you mean by a word like thant...
