Thank you for your patience while we were investigating into the issue.
Over the time this thread became too generic to come up with any actionable items for the team to work upon.
As a result, we started reaching out to all of you to understand the issue in depth.
During the course of this activity it was discovered that, for majority of you the issue was no longer reproducible and the functionality resumed working fine.
For some of you the issue was related to incorrect use of dictionary, which was resolved by suggesting the correct method.
For now, we have decided to close this thread. In case you are facing any issue with spellcheck functionality please create a new thread with more specifics so that we can start working on it asap.
You can also reach out directly to us on email@example.com.

my spell check isn't working either. Neither 2018 and 2019 versions are working. Did a spell check on the word "word" ... said "word" was an unknown word. No suggestions. This has been a none problem for too long. Where is Adobe on this? I have a "word" for them!
Thank you for your support. The issue is now fixed in the latest update of InDesign.
Please upgrade to the new InDesign 14.0 from your Creative Cloud Application.
If you are unable to see the update yet, click on the menu (three dots) on the top right corner of Creative cloud app and click on “Check for App Updates”.
Let us know your feedback in the comment section.

This problem has been going on for almost 10 months. Why hasn't adobe fixed it. This is really frustrating. You may be the only game in town, but it would serve you well to stop acting like it.
