Confusion over the spelling of ឲ្យ or ឱ្យ

We’ve written about this before (Spelling Question), but today we discovered that in the first edition of Chuon Nath’s dictionary, he uses ឲ្យ as the head word rather than ឱ្យ as is currently placed as the head word in newer editions of his dictionary. It makes sense that Chuon Nath’s first edition would use ឲ្យ as the head word being that in all the examples throughout the dictionary, only ឲ្យ is used (outside of those times where it is stated that ឱ្យ can also be used). Here’s a screen shot of ឲ្យ as the head word in the first edition of Chuon…

It basically killed our SEO and…

Help Sponsor a Khmer Spelling Checker for Microsoft Word

SBBIC is currently working to develop a Khmer spelling checker for Microsoft Word but we need funds to higher a developer to create the addin using the Hunspell program and dictionary currently used for OpenOffice and LibreOffice. You can help us with the…

Khmer OCR Software by PAN

Optical character recognition software for the Khmer language. It is only trained for Limon R1 (you can try it with other fonts, but it might not be accurate). PAN Cambodia has since ceased to develop this software, but you can use it as is. Optical character recognition, usually abbreviated to OCR, is the mechanical or electronic conversion of scanned or photographed images of typewritten or printed text into machine-encoded/computer-readable text (source: Wikipedia). UPDATE (6-26-2014): There are a few projects in the works concerning Khmer OCR: A 1 year project funded by the World Bank for the Department of Computer Science of…
