Version of spelling-checker engine by WIntertree Software
Nov 20, 1995
Wintertree Software has just released the Sentry Spelling-Checker Engine version 3.4. The SSCE is a software component that application developers can use to add spelling checker capability to their products. It contains an application-program interface that allows other software to check word spellings, locate suggested word replacements and update user dictionaries. Redistributable American- and British-English dictionaries, each containing about 100,000 words, are included with the engine. French, Italian, German and Spanish dictionaries are also available.
A dictionary containing hundreds of common misspellings and their replacements is included so the SSCE can automatically or conditionally replace misspelled words with their correct spellings. In addition to the source code, Wintertree Software markets a Windows software development kit which allows Microsoft Windows developers to add a spelling checker to their applications. The Windows software development kit also includes the SSCE Dialogs dynamic link library, which allows application developers to add a complete spelling checker, including a user interface, by adding just one statement to their programs.
