Automatic correction of misspelled words means offering a single proposal to correct a mistake, for example, switching two let- ters, omitting letter or a key press. In Ara- bic, there are some typical common errors based on letter errors, such as confusing in the form of Hamza ????, confusion between Daad ??? and Za ???, and the omission dots with Yeh ??? and Teh ??? . So we propose in this paper a system de- scription of a mechanism for automatic correction of common errors in Arabic based on rules, by using two methods, a list of words and regular expressions. Keywords: AutoCorrect, spell checking, Arabic language processing.
