Using KernSpell for the Mac OS

Language / yeth:

Once KernSpell has been downloaded and installed, using it is quite straightforward. Simply create a new document (or load an existing one) and start typing.

In Microsoft Word, for instance, you should notice that any word that doesn't appear in either Word's English dictionary or in KernSpell's list of words will appear with a red line underneath it. Simply control-click on a "misspelt" word to see a set of alternatives. A list of "nearest matches" from KernSpell's dictionary will then be given. Clicking on any of the words listed will insert them into your document. If a red line appears underneath a word that you are sure is spelt correctly then that word can easily be added to KernSpell's dictionary: Just right-click on the word and then click on "Add" to put it onto KernSpell's wordlist.

If you find that a lot of the words you use are not in KernSpell's dictionary already, then they can be added to the database. Write to me if you want me to add one of your UCR 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.)
