Using Divvun on a Mac
When you have opened MS Office you will have to tell Office which langauge the text is written in.
1. Mark the sami text:
2. Go to the menu Tools > Language… :
3. Choose the langauge Catalan for North Sámi , Basque for Julev Sámi , or Slovak for South Sámi ( 1):
4. If you usually write in Sami, you may make Sami your default language for new documents, by clicking the button Default… (see previous picture) and thereafter click the button Yes :
5. Now you may start writing in Sami, and the Divvun tools will help you spell correctly:
So far, Microsoft has not included support for Sami in MS Office for Mac, despite the fact that such a support is provided for MS Office for Windows. Hopefully future verisions of MS Office for Mac will include this support. Until then we will have to pretend that the Sami languages are other languages, already defined in MS Office.
