the Iñupiaq Spellchecker:
the Spellchecker if you haven't yet done so. It's a small (about 70 k) text
file with over 4,800 words in it. You must have the Iñupiaq
font installed for this spellchecker to work. (This is a spellchecker,
not the whole dictionary. If you get a pop-up box that asks Open? or Save
As?, please choose Save AS. After it is saved, follow the directions
below.) If you are using the CD-ROM to view the
site find the spellchecker (inupiaq.dic) in the folder ftp/language/spellchecker.
How to Install the Iñupiaq Spellchecker with Microsoft Word
-- The Iñupiaq Spellchecker is currently not available for download.
Sorry for any inconvenience.
To Make the Iñupiaq
Spellchecker functional with Microsoft Word:
the Iñupiaq Spellchecker:
- Open Microsoft Word
- Click on Tools Menu
- Select Options for Windows and Preferences for Mac
- Select Spelling&Grammar Tab
- Click on "Dictionaries..." Button
- In the Custom Dictionaries box, Click on Add
- Windows Users: Find the location of Inupiaq.dic (remember where
you saved it when you downloaded it or use your computer's Find method to
look for it), select it, and click OK (it should show up along with Custom.Dic
in the Custom dictionaries box, and the check-box by it should be checked).
- Mac Users: You may not be able to see the file. After you click "Add",
in the next window click on "Speller Custom Dictionary" and change
to "All files" so you can see the dictionary.
- Now if you click on the "down arrow" in the drop-down box in the Spelling&Grammar
tab, you should see Inupiaq.dic included below CUSTOM.DIC.
- Click OK to return to editing your page.
As you type: To set the MS Word Spellchecker to check
words "as you type:" select Options from the Tools menu. Check the box next
to "Check Spelling as You Type" then click OK.
Run the Spellchecker after text is typed: Press F7 or
select "Spelling and Grammar" from the Tools menu.
Running the Spellchecker will show the words that don't have matches in the
Iñupiaq spellchecking list. However, suggested spellings might appear
to be weird because the Iñupiaq font is not reflected in the suggested
spellings box. Choosing to have Word check spelling as you type may be a better
Suggestion: If you choose to have spelling checked as
you type, a squiggly red line appears under each word without a match in the
Iñupiaq Spellchecker list. Correct typos and leave words that are correctly
typed. Then when you're finished with a section, add to your Iñupiaq
Spellchecker list by running the Spellchecker then selecting "Add" whenever
there is a correctly spelled word that isn't recognized simply because that
word isn't yet in the Iñupiaq Spellchecker list.
