Hoekom is Scottish Gaelic spell checker gebou?
We all know the problem - someone has a bright idea to do a Gaelic spellchecker but rather than do it the long and hard way by building what's called a lexical database (think of that as a massive table that links forms like mhuc, mhucan, muice, mhuice etc to the root muc, they just compile a long list. They then don't maintain the list, making for very unhappy users.
This one is different. It's based on the lexical database in the Faclair Beag which means that although there are still a few bugs in it, you will get regular updates for the spellchecker. Simple as that.
Wat is volgende vir Scottish Gaelic spell checker?
Mainly three things, tidying the existing data (there's always a typo you missed and expanding the lexical database, as there are still gaps in it and filtering our some of the more obscure words to make the suggestions more relevant.

Wie is Kevin Scannell?
I am American, originally from Boston but living in St. Louis, Missouri now. For many years I've had a great interest in the Irish language and language technology. I lead the team that created the Irish localizations of Mozilla Firefox and Thunderbird, and I created the spell checker "GaelSpell", which is available as an add-on from this site (I translated this site too!) Enjoy, and send me a note if you get some benefit from these programs!
