Class Overview

SpellCheckerService provides an abstract base class for a spell checker. This class combines a service to the system with the spell checker service interface that spell checker must implement.

In addition to the normal Service lifecycle methods, this class introduces a new specific callback that subclasses should override createSession() to provide a spell checker session that is corresponding to requested language and so on. The spell checker session returned by this method should extend SpellCheckerService.Session.

Returning spell check results

onGetSuggestions(TextInfo, int) should return spell check results. It receives TextInfo and returns SuggestionsInfo for the input. You may want to override onGetSuggestionsMultiple(TextInfo[], int, boolean) for better performance and quality.

Please note that getLocale() does not return a valid locale before onCreate()
