I use open source software and I am learning to speak Te Reo. So I decided to make a spell-checker for the times when I write emails using Mozilla Thunderbird or post on Twitter or Facebook using Mozilla Firefox.
I have finished the first working version and if you want to download it and try it out you can go here https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/takikupu/.
It will work on Windows, Linux and Apple computers but not on mobile devices.
The words come predominantly from ‘He Pātaka Kupu’. The plan is to add more words, such as placenames and iwi, over time.
Meanwhile, feel free to comment below.
