USPS web service query

HI all,
I want to do address validation in my website & while doing that I was doing analysis about USPS web tools. I found that the web service provided by USPS is useful only for address validation & not for address correction i.e. it will just add zip+4 code to address if address provided is correct but it will not make any correction if there are any spelling mistakes or abbreviations used.
There is another service called USPS AEC(Address element correction) which can do address correction but it is an offline service & hence not useful to me.
So can anyone tell me if there is any product provided by USPS which can be used for address correction? Please let me know just the product name so I can do research on that. Thanks in advance.

I just finished UPS Address Validation integration using the UPS online tools. Obviously, this is only relevant if you use UPS but you might get some ideas from the code. Check out my blog..
I agree. Here's the link:
