GaidhealSpell Scottish Gaelic spelling checker for the Mac OS

Language / teanga:

GaidhealSpell is a free Scottish Gaelic language spelling checker. Intended for students, teachers, lecturers, journalists and everyone who writes in Scottish Gaelic on the Macintosh. GaidhealSpell makes it easy to find and correct common spelling mistakes.

GaidhealSpell works with a number of word-processors. With Microsoft Word, for instance, any word that isn't spelt correctly in Scottish Gaelic or English simply appears with a red line underneath it, as the screenshot below shows:

And if you're not sure of how a word should be spelt, just control-click on it and a list of close matches will appear:

Drawing on a database of more than 132,000 words of text, this version of GaidhealSpell (version 1) contains over 47,000 entries that cover the most frequent grammatical variations of many common Scottish Gaelic words. The database is maintained by Michael Everson. New words can be added to the original list with only a couple of mouse clicks. Write to me if you want me to add one of your documents to the database that will be used to prepare the next version. (Please don't just send me the files. Write to me first.)
