Use OS native dictionary for spell check including custom dictionary

It is incredibly frustrating to have spent years adding words to the custom dictionary on my laptop the first time I've typed them and then suddenly Webex has a much smaller spell check dictionary that doesn't recognize common words much less my custom jargon and having to add everything all over again. Why can't Webex just tap into the spell check dictionary that's built into the OS so I don't have to curate two? If all of the Microsoft apps can pull from the same custom dictionary for spell checking purposes, why can't Webex?

    And why not allow the use/installation of your own dictionary, just like libreoffice.org add dictionary extensions?
    Personally, I miss my native language to check for possible typos.

    This seems so obvious an idea that it's difficult to express how annoying it is to have to complain about it and ask for the change to the native dictionary to be made. Please fix. Please, please, please.
