The Hayden Speller, or Hayden:Speller, checks Word and MacWrite documents against a dictionary "covering 97% of the most frequently used words in the English language."

A later version, 1.2c, was reviewed by Macworld in July 1986:

Compared to the other programs tested, Hayden:Speller is neither particularly fast nor particularly effective. Because of its small dictionary (22,000 words), many correctly spelled words are flagged as possible misspellings, slowing down the checking process considerably. In addition, you may waste a good deal of time trying to determine if a suspect word is indeed misspelled or if it is merely not included in the dictionary.

Hayden:Speller's main advantage is that its dictionary takes up comparatively little disk space and can therefore be used on a 128K Mac with a single drive.
