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!

My Reviews


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).
