  • It's an excellent add-on, and thank you for maintaining it, Marco Pinto.
    Thank you my dear brother,

    I have been dedicating the latest times to add possessives and plurals to words.

    I have been analysing word by word to see which ones are nouns and thus add plural+possessive.

    I still have issues with the "mass nouns"/"uncountable nouns" since only some accept plurals and I am not sure if they all accept possessives.

    I committed the current version to Gerrit and it will come with LibreOffice 6.4 in January, but then I found out that some more common plurals were missing, such as "punishers", which I will come in December's version but it will only be integrated into LibreOffice in May (they only integrate the spellers twice a year: May and November).

    There is still a long way to go and I know that I can make the difference. Like Spock once said: "because the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the one or the few". Individual effort will benefit millions.

    Kind regards from,

  • Fabulous, now I can pretty much ditch my Chromium based browser. Firefox has Picture-in-picture (off by default!) and a Spell-checker... Who would have known 😱
    Thank you, my dear brother!

  • This is an essential part of using Firefox, why the hell do Mozilla not just include it in the UK version, it comes with NO ability to spell check, but the US one has the US spell checker which for us in England is rubbish - get a grip Mozilla, and add spell checkers for all nations not just bloody America!
    Thanks Marco for doing their work for them ;)

    I have been working hard on the speller during my holiday.

    I am trying to add as much possessives and plurals as possible and clean the .dic file by replacing words with flags (derivations), which is the reason why the add-on's filesize is the same or decreased in the last release.

    You can always check the list of changes here: https://github.com/marcoagpinto/aoo-mozilla-en-dict

    I have also taken the suggestion of a person who e-mailed me and am now trying to check Wikipedia articles more closely, mainly the ones from important fields so that if someone is writing an essay on a subject, they will have most of the words from that subject.

    Thank you for the five stars review, my dear brother.

    Kind regards,
  • Works perfectly.
    I had to remove my installed version of Firefox as I had installed the US English version (who knew!) and the US English version seems to default to US English and will not allow you to select UK English as it's default.

    Following reinstallation I installed the first English Dictionary in the Add-on list and it simply does not work.

    Having uninstalled that one and installed this one, I am pleased to report a now functional UK dictionary. Bravo!
    Thank you, my dear brother.

    In the next dictionary update around the end of the month, it will include tons of plurals and possessives.

    I have been dedicating some time to this task.
  • I find this ENGLISH english (not US) spellchecker brilliant. The only things it misses are homophones where I use the wrong spelling but that spelling is valid for another context e.g. great and grate . . . but no system can be expected to cover that!! I also like the way it works even when I'm filling in forms etc.
    Thank you my dear brother,

    If you have a list of missing words, please send them to me and I will try to add them in the next release.

    Kind regards,
