Spellcheck a file in the shell (terminal)
For example, to spellcheck the file
$ aspell check letter.txt
The shell (a.k.a terminal) will display an interactive screen suggesting corrections. You can choose to ignore the highlighted word, accept a suggestion et cetera.
To learn more about
$ man aspell in your shell.
You might notice that when you spellcheck and modify a file,
aspell creates a backup of that file by making a copy and appending
.bak to the file name. To tell
aspell not to create a backup file, add the option
-x to the command.

I do self-funded research and I'm writing a book.
> What's the book about?
About technologies and epistemology.
Meaning, technologies can foster agency. No doubt. But I am also asking:
Can technologies make us blind?
