Spell check a file from the command line

For example, to spell check the file named letter run

$ aspell check letter

the first misspelt word should be highlighted and an interactive menu should pop up where you can select suggested corrections, choose to ignore that word, add word to dictionary et cetera.

For more information, including how to add other dictionaries, run $ man aspell to display the manual in your terminal.
