4) Run the spell checker.

Expected result

une manœuvre is accepted as correct.

Hello, wiesmann

Thank you for the report and welcome to Trac.

I'm sorry, but WordPress core doesn't include a spell checker. The spell checking is probably provided through a plugin, like "TinyMCE Spellcheck" or Jetpack module "After the Deadline".

I suggest contacting the author, of the actual plugin you are using, of this problem. This may be done through the support page for the plugin.

If you are using the the text editor, as opposed to the visual editor, a spell checker included in, or added to, you browser, may also perform this spell checking.
