Ideas for Google Summer of Code/Spell checker web interface
Apertium-html-tools has seen some prototypes for spell-checking interfaces (all in stale PRs and branches on GitHub), but none have ended up being quite ready to integrate into the tools. This project would entail polishing up or recreating an interface, and making sure APy has a mode that allows access to Apertium voikospell modules. The end result should be a slick, easy-to-use interface for proofing text, with intuitive underlining of text deemed to be misspelled and intuitive presentation and selection of alternatives.
See Talk:Spell checking for some additional discussion.
There's a bit of a meta issue on GitHub: https://github.com/apertium/apertium-html-tools/issues/12
The big picture
The following need to be created or finished:
- An APy mode for voikko modules
- An Apertium-html-tools interface that accesses the APy mode
- Should offer standard spell checking features
