How to manage words added to dictionary

I am using Brave (Version 1.15.76 Chromium: 86.0.4240.111 (Official Build) (x86_64) on macOS Catalina (10.15).

I accidentally added an incorrect spelled word to my dictionary and I’m unable to find how I can remove it.

I did see a couple of other similar posts, but they were automatically closed due to no response.

Does anyone know how I can manage my dictionary words in Brave?

Seems this is not possible within the UI. I found this GitHub post which explains how to do it manually:

Hello @londonappdev

go to brave://settings/editDictionary

and remove the words that you do not like

hope that help and have a nice day

Thanks for the response.

I tried that but it just takes me to the settings root. I also tried chrome://settings/editDictionary and it did the same thing.

go to brave://settings/languages then choose Customize spell check

  • click the hamburger menu (three dots in the upper right)
  • pick settings
  • scroll to the bottom and click advanced
  • scroll to the language section
  • pick spell check, it should drop down more options
  • pick custom spelling, your list of oops words should be here.
  • click the x on the right of any word you want removed

but in this link it say the option is not

one of the comment say how to edit the file that contains the dictinary

hope that help and have a nice day

Thanks for your time… In my interface the Spellcheck setting is a toggle (not a dropdown)…

I must have a different version or OS?

Either way, I managed to remove the word manually by editing the text file.

Thank you!

you welcome

yep i am on linux what why i sent you the link

glad to know that you figured it out and have a nice day
