does anyone know if this can be used as a spelling test ?

Although it obviously depends on your precise use case, MyScript recognition may not be the most appropriate tool for spell checking:
By default, the recognizer combines the recognition of individual characters with linguistic information contained in a lexicon. This gives it a tendency to "auto-correct" inputs that look similar to existing lexicon entries. It may thus to a certain extent "transform" what was written, which may not be what you want.
With the alternative approach not to use the lexicon (by removing the linguistic knowledge resource) and to only rely on character recognition, there may be ambiguities (some characters mistaken for others) that degrade the quality of the recognition.
