Subject: [libreoffice-users] Re: How to remove the spell checker


MSO has very few spell checkers other than US English, compared to LO.

They are immensely more primitive than MSO ones, though. Just compare the 
English or Russian dictionaries with ORFO's ones. Also, you can have a 
spellchecker for any language in MSO, like Kazakh or Turkmen. Those 
dictionaries cannot be supported in LO.

Hi :)  
I'm CCing the international translators list in one this because they are more likely to know 
technical details about such FUD.  

Urmas seems to contradict what is seen on the downloads page
Kazakh is clearly listed.  So all the menus and pop-up dialogues and everything can be set to use 
Kazakh instead of English (US).  Also there are tons of RightToLeft languages as well as LTR ones.  
I'm not sure if it handles BottomToTop but we seem to have at least one listed.  

Ok, so that doesn't have much to do with whether a spell-checker would work but surely all a 
spell-checker requires is 
1.  the spell-checker engine itself.  
2.  That the language has a font and can be displayed on-screen
3.  a dictionary

The spell checker seems to work fine on most languages.  I'm not sure why you think it wouldn't 
work with another 2.  We have seen there is a font for it and that it can display well on-screen.  
Dictionaries can be created as they are really just lists of words (ok, ideally very, very long 
lists but they could be quite short to start with because words can easily be added by users 
(right-click and "Add to dictionary"))
