In this technical era, searching the Web has accelerated, but the user satisfaction is still not up to the mark. However, retrieval of required data is yet a challenging job. Users still struggle to get the precise facts on the Internet. To fetch the most correct end result is a hard mission due to the giant unstructured repository on the Web, huge list of results returned by search engines, etc. Spelling errors in query are the main attribute that degrades the performances of any search interface. In this paper, the effectiveness of the search interface is improved and the performance is accelerated by implementing novel spelling correction module which is implemented and tested on Indian tourism semantic search interface to handle misspelled words in query.
