Build Discovery support for automatic correction of mis-spellings instead of requiring Query expansion to explicitely train Discovery

We are an OEM partner of IBM and have built a Chatbot offering with Watson Discovery search integration.

Feedback from one of our Customer's indicates that they are looking for built-in Watson Discovery support for correcting mis-spellings / offering choices to correct mis-spellings similar to Google search.

They are not interested in explicitely training Discovery using query expansions beacause of the manual effort involved.

Hence it would be good to add built-in support for correcting mis-spellings to Discovery,

Who would benefit from this IDEA? All Customer's who use Discovery search. Can help reduce in explicitely training Discovery for correcting mis-spellings using Discovery search
