UPDATE: Our solution does not yet work perfectly – line-breaks do not work with a hair space, so we are still in the process with Adobe trying to find a solution that will work without any issue.
With the release of InDesign CS 5.5 Hunspell dictionaries are now supported. This means we can use the SBBIC spelling dictionary with InDesign! There are some issues though, because InDesign was not tested fully with Khmer, but we are able to get around them (even though it makes things a bit complex). Right now our solution is MAC ONLY because I don’t have my PC here with me – but we will include PC instructions soon (and they won’t me much different than the Mac instruction).
We have published a spelling checker which you can download here, but if you are interested in the word list you can download it and use it in any way you would like. This list has 75,039 Khmer words and is a combination of SBBIC, KhmerOS and PanCambodia’s lists.
We’ve just released a spelling checker add-on for Firefox. Please try it out and let us know if you have any problems. Make sure and change your language to Khmer when you want to check Khmer spelling by right-clicking on a text box, choosing “Languages” and then “Khmer / Cambodian”
An extension for OpenOffice.org 3.x and LibreOffice to include a Khmer spelling checker. Based on the word-lists of KhmerOS and SBBIC. Allows for Khmer numbers as well as the inclusion of ទី before numbers. No longer will Khmer numbers be viewed as misspelled words. We also included some better coding to make the checker better at giving you a correct spelling for a misspelled word. Also, now the ៗ character will no longer cause words to be misspelled. In this release we added more Khmer proper names as well as additional number and date combinations. There are now 75,147 words and phrases included in the spelling checker. Thank you to all the volunteers who made this possible!
