Web based proofreading service Webvoikko can now do spell checking for
Northern Sami language:
Here are quick instructions (the interface is in Finnish):
- Under "Valitse sanasto" select "Giellatekno/Divvun/UiT fst-based
speller for Northern Sami".
- Now you can type or copy-paste your text into the text area under
"Kirjoita teksti". No need to click any buttons, spell checking results
will soon appear under the text area. Red words are spelling errors. You
can click them to get suggestions (and clicking a suggestion will
replace the word in the text area). Clicking correctly spelled words
would display information about the word but that does not work with
- Under tab "Oikolue WWW-sivu" you can enter an URL for a web page
containing text in Northern Sami, for example
Clicking "Oikolue" will fetch the page, extract text from it and
display the results. Red and green bars next to the text can be ignored.
If grammar checking was available those bars would tell if the text is a
full paragraph or some other kind of text content (grammar checking will
use relaxed rules for non-paragraph text content).
If the service is useful or you wish to see improvements, let me know.
