In a little more detail...

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!

Add-ons I've created

Scottish Gaelic spell checker No Restart

An open (traditional spellings and GOC inclusive) spell-checking addon for Scots Gaelic, which will correct over 700,000 words, with industry-standard rules for lenition, initial h- n- t- etc, making it the biggest spell-checking dictionary to date.

My Reviews

Rastnivîs

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I agree with saboturan - Rastnivîs is great. Works perfectly with FF 3.0.1 and with multiple spell checkers installed. I hope the editors will move this out of the sandbox ASAP!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.95).
