    International spell-checking

    Is there any interest in an extension or other method to provide non-English spell checking?  I have been working on a spellchecker that uses ISpell, a relative of the well known ASpell. It comes with multiple languages and user custom dictionary support.

    Languages supported are listed at:

    Hello Martin,

    I'm very interested in a Dutch spellchecker and with me - I think - a lot of Dutch Pegasus Mail-users too.
    A good initiative Martin.

    Re: International spell-checking

    I am very interested in having non-english spell-checking in Pegasus Mail. Especially German, French and Portuguese. Some friends did not stay with Pegasus Mail because of the missing spell checker. It would be perfect to have on-the-fly spell checking as an option.

    Thanks for your efforts!

    Johannes

    Re: International spell-checking

    I would like tho have a Dutch spellchecker and a dutch translation. I have been asking David and others to make work of it. Two years ago I mentioned http://www.opentaal.org/index.php to Phons and hoped he could/would do something with it. I also see much users leave Pmail because there isn't a Dutch translantion. At our school we are switching to Groupwise because Pmail isn't dutch. So please hurry. I hope David will go public with version 4.5 soon and the translation can begin.

    Re: International spell-checking

    I have an operational version right now, but it has to use the clipboard as I don't have an interface with Pegasus Mail and TER.   I am using articles from this forum as my test streams as well as the Url supplied above.  I will make it available for initial testing shortly, from my website.

    I think a Dutch spell-checker is of the essence to increase the popularity of PMail in the Netherlands

    Dag Frank,

    Re: International spell-checking

    I have now put in place some international dictionaries, and the small application called TinySpell. Though this application is not bound to Pegasus Mail, it can be used quite efficiently to check message compositions. The dictionaries and the application are located in http://community.pmail.com/files/folders/languages/  A user dictionary can be used for additional things like technical words and less frequently used words.  8-bit accented words are processed with or without the accented characters.

    Please note this solution is not associated with Pegasus Mail and can be used for any purpose when wanting spellchecking done. An upgrade to TinySpell can be purchased, that will allow switching between languages.  But for infrequent swiching, a simple batch job can rename the LEX and SUP files.

    I am working on a version of ISpell, which is more complex and therefore less friendly for simple typo mistakes.

    Lastly, please do not ask for support from the Pegasus Mail team (just me), as they are going to be busy with the new release of Pegasus Mail shortly.

    Re: International spell-checking

    Thanks!

    French for me please!  :)

    Will we be able to get a spelling checker that acts like the editor in Word, for instance, which underlines in red the faulty word ? (sorry for the bad english...)

    The editor in TheBat! acts like this too.

     

    By the way, the version of BearHTML available in the community files add-ons is v3.1.3 and is 4.5.5 on your own website.

    What's up?

     

    Best regards,

    François
