I use fly-spell, it works great with Emacspeak, although sometimes it does
get in the way, but it's easier for me than using ispell, which doesn't
work with Emacspeak as well.

I use wcheck-mode:

It checks on the fly, is unobtrusive, has no
performance issues -- because it only ever checks a screenful of
text, and it does not interfere with helm -- at least not to my

wcheck-mode is a frontend to the spellchecking engine.  I
configured it to use enchant, which in turn I configured to use
hunspell and myspell.  The configuration was tricky for me, but
now it works like a charm.

The wcheck-jump-backward command is really great, I bound it to
Insert-Insert which is very fast to type.  I don't know how to
make this work with repeating keystrokes in order to jump to the
next marked word without correcting the first one (false
positives and such, as stated elsewhere in this thread).

Ciao; Gregor
