The SpellingSensitivity property controls how much variation the locator will allow when it searches for likely candidates in the reference data. A low value for spelling sensitivity will allow �Mane�, �Maine�, and �Man� to be treated as match candidates for �Main�. A higher value will restrict candidates to exact matches. The spelling sensitivity does not affect the match score of each candidate; it only controls how many candidates the locator considers. The locator then computes the match score of each candidate and ranks the candidates by score.

The SpellingSensitivity property can have values between 0 and 100. If you are sure that your addresses are spelled correctly, you can specify a higher value for the SpellingSensitivity. However, if you think that your addresses may contain spelling errors, then you should specify a lower value.
