When the spell check is enabled on the Android 4.4.4 KitKat device, the next issue is there to select the spell checker which is appropriate to your language and requirement. One spell checker, set by default, is Android Spell Checker (AOSP) but you may download and select Google Spell Checker. It will come with Google Keyboard. Interestingly, both the spell checkers are developed by one company but keeping an eye on the different specific end user.
