Is there a way to enable spell checking for modern pages? Of course I can simply use the spelling checker integrated in the web browser. But it is not as smart as the one from Word...

The publishing features are activated!

Site Features: Site Features

Site Collection Features: enter image description here

And it doesn't work...

spell check shall work by default in SharePoint Online like the pic below enter image description here

If not working, have a try to activate the publishing feature and have a try.

  • Thank you for your answer, but it doesn't work... (I have updated my post) Sep 17, 2020 at 8:56
  • @SharePointNewbie, it may be better for you to submit a service request about this. I tested with several sites with/without the feature, the spell check always work.
