[Solved] Problem with Finnish spell check

Postby lauriina » Thu Oct 09, 2014 4:12 pm

Hi!

https://forum.openoffice.org/en/forum/v ... 74&t=16512

I followed the process in the above troubleshooting until the end, but still my open office puts a red line under my Finnish text. I'm using Voikko v. 2.2.20100929 as dictionary.

Any help would be much appreciated!

Hi and welcome to the forum!

Thank you but no, it doesn't really help, sorry!

Do you have any tips on what I could try to make it work?

Does it work with another language?
Can you upload a sample file (see How to attach a document here) so that we try with the Finnish dictionary?

Yes, it works with English.

I don't quite know what you mean by sample file? What should I put in it?

On that document I get the red lines under the Finnish text as well as the English text with mistakes.

Sorry, no Finnish spell checking in OpenOffice until a native speaker starts to maintain a Finnish dictionary extension.

Yes, but there is Voikko (http://voikko.puimula.org/) which they say is a Finnish dictionary extension for OpenOffice specifically. I have installed it but it doesn't seem to work, that's what I was asking about.

The only place where they mention OpenOffice is here: http://voikko.puimula.org/releases.html in an old release note of 2012

Replace OpenOffice with http://libreoffice.org/
