How to use the spelling checker

Windows users
If the input method and language are configured as recommended in Windows 8.1, the spell checker language will follow the keyboard (input) language automatically. If so, the instructions below are superfluous. Just switch input method: English keyboard layout when writing in English, North Sámi keyboard when writing in North Sámi, etc. The speller language will switch together with the keyboard layout!

To turn on the Divvn spell checker for North Sámi, do as follows:

  • Click the fourth field from the left in the status bar, and then click «More …»:

  • Now you can right click the misspelled word and get correction suggestions (the "word" nuvviDspeller will generate suggestions telling you what version you have of the Divvun spell checker):
