Spell Checker Support For Worlds Languages

Kevin Atkinson

I hope this isn't too off topic for this list.

I am trying to record, in a systematic way, how well the four common
Free spell checkers support the worlds languages.  Thus I would like
people who are involved in dictionary maintenance in some way to answer
this brief survey for me.  Please answer inline by replying to this
message and sending to [hidden email].  If you wish to answer for more
than one language please send the answers in separate emails.

By answering this survey you agree to allow me to post your reply
publicly.  If this will cause a problem please clearly state so before
answering any questions.

I will post the results in a few weeks.

Thanks in advance.

Please forward this message to others as appropriate.
