Russian spell-checker available as add-on to Microsoft Word

Circle Noetic Services has released PassWORD, an add-on spelling checker for Microsoft Word for the Macintosh. Once installed, passWORD is simply called up by selecting ”Russian Spell...” from the Tools menu.

The user can also create a number of Customized Exception Dictionaries to handle any words that do not appear in Circle Noetics' 2.3-million word Russian Dictionary. PassWORD also features a Temporary Exception Dictionary. This allows users to spell-check their text and add document-specific exception words to a temporary dictionary, while not adding the words to a Customized Exception Dictionary. Upon quitting Word, this temporary dictionary is deleted.

One exclusive feature of PassWORD is its ability to spell-check bilingual (Russian and English) documents with automatic switching between the two languages. PassWORD Russian/English Spelling Checker is available for $249.95.
