I am using the Bing Spell Check API, it shows that Arabic is a supported language, yet when I try the API (following the python documentation) it works for English and French but not Arabic. And I have set the mode to 'spell'. I tried 'mkt', 'setlang' and 'Accept-Langauge', none are working.

    @Mali Our team has confirmed that this is an issue with Arabic character recognition by the API. There are some improvements in the pipeline that get shipped at the end of this year and early next year which should ensure the API fully compatible with all characters other than English(en) along with speller quality for all suggestions.
