Subject: [Apertium-stuff] From the libvoikko list: Developing spellchecker infrastructure from automata

Quoting a letter from a collegue of mine, Sjur Moshagen (

Since many of the new apertium languages now are built as fst with lexc / hfst, a setup like the one referred to below would as a side effect create spellcheckers directly from apertium-based automata. People interested can contact Sjur (address above).



Hello list members,

The Divvun group at the University of Tromsø is looking for someone that could upgrade the VoikkoSpellService code for payment. The upgrade should contain at least the following features:

* support for multiple speller languages
* support for the latest version of libvoikko, with support for zhfst files
* support for speller files within user home dirs (~/.voikko/...)
* universal binary (at least 32 and 64 bit, perhaps also PPC)

I have asked both the main developer of Voikko and the developer of the present VoikkoSpellService code if they would like to do it, but they have kindly asked me to forward the request to the list.

If anyone is interested, please contact me off-list.

Sjur Moshagen
