Yet again, Microsoft Word is beaten by mere humans when we pit the software against words used in the 2019 Spelling Bee finals.

We made a list of some words from the 2019 Spelling Bee finals including the last eight words which confirmed the winners.

See for yourself how Microsoft Word did against the human champs:

The red squiggly lines show words that Microsoft Word didn’t recognize.

This year Word had the same results in English US, UK and Australia dictionaries.

The score

   Spelling Bee champs: 19

   Microsoft Word:  7

Humans beat software by a wide margin.

Congratulations to all the ‘octo-champs’
