spelling mistakes in typeahead search

In an index based search, is it possible to handle spelling mistakes and show results that are spelled "close to" what the user types in? If so, how can this be achieved and how can you control how far from the searchterm the results should go?

Hi Hans

Yes, you can use suggestions:

Suggestions are "closest match" based on what the user types and what is in the index.

So If i write "bicicle" it can figure out that the closest term in the index is "bicycle" - this is also the feature that is used in Swift typeahead.
