Text based search with spell checker or Sound

I am doing a text based search, there are 2 options we are looking into:-

(i) If the user enters a keyword as "Asif" or "Aseef" it should recognize it and display the
result as both sounds same, hence thought of using some SOUND based algorithm.
Any SOUND based API in Java?

(ii) The other option is to check the spelling of the word with the data stored in the DB and based on that
comparison either approve or reject.

Please clarify which one will better? Any links are really appreciated.
