Much like most word processors have spell check as I type, is there a way to have this done in InDesign?

I'm constantly forgetting to run the spell check before sending off proofs and I'm getting a reputation :/

:) was "teputation" intentional? –  Scott Apr 4 '13 at 2:15

No, but you can see why I need spell check lol –  OghmaOsiris Apr 4 '13 at 2:48
    
This post just saved my job. I am always making typos and miss spellings when I have to re-type things and I don't catch them before sending it off to the next person. –  dudeguy Mar 20 at 21:01

Preferences > Spelling, check Dynamic Spelling and set the options you like.

You can also enable Preference > Autocorrect which may be helpful as well. However, be a bit wary of autocorrect. It can easily autocorrect to the wrong word depending on your typing error.... it will spell correctly... but it may spell the wrong word entirely.

Yep. I had a boss who was trying to write an email to someone saying, "I look forward to working with you." She missed the K, and the email program corrected her to "I look forward to whoring with you." Fortunately she caught it before it went out... –  Lauren Ipsum Apr 4 '13 at 10:16
