That is not true for as long as I can remember: nowadays
right-clicking on a misspelled word pops up a menu of suggested
replacements.  How many years ago was that ``last time you tried
flyspell''?

Flyspell doesn't have a vocabulary of its own, it invokes either
Ispell or Aspell behind the scenes.  So it's up to you what speller
and which dictionaries to install.  Latest versions of both Ispell and
Aspell are quite good, actually.
