LibreOffice Tools

As we mentioned before, the following tools (for Irish) are available for LibreOffice:

  • Thesaurus
  • Spellchecker
  • Grammar checker
  • Hyphenator

There tools are all based on the pioneering work conducted by Professor Kevin Scannell in St. Louis University, Missouri.

It is only recently, in April 2014, that the grammar checker is available, thanks to COGG which provided funding to Dúrud in order to complete this work, i.e. to adapt the grammar engine developed by Professor Scannell for use with LibreOffice.

  • Let it be noted that these tools are all based on the same basic material that the software packages Gaelspell, Ceart and Anois are, available from Cruinneog for the Microsoft Office package.

The Tools

Dúrud has created an installation package that has united all the tools for Irish into one so that it is easy to install them. You can find more detais on how to implement them for your system, in the appropriate link on the left.
