While Communigate Pro comes with a way to integrate a spell checker to WSSP webskins, this integration is quite limited. The spell checking is done one word at a time, and the whole message body is transferred over and over back and forth on each click.
Wouldn't it be interesting to see, at a glance, all misspelt words without having to click again, again and again on the Ignore or the Replace button? To have a really integrated spell checker which display misspelt words as in major text processing software?
Well, Aspell Proxy for LookOut is the solution. When integrated in LookOut 3.8.5+, a simple, single click on the Check Spelling button and all the misspelt words are underlined in red. Users can click the misspelt words to get replacement suggestions and, when this feature is enabled, they can even add words to a personal dictionary.
Aspell Proxy comes in two flavors:
In both cases, the message body is transferred once between LookOut and the spell checker, and a list of words and suggestions is sent back to LookOut.
In LookOut 4, the XIMSS flavor is already built-in, with all the features described above, but no per-user dictionaries. Using the CGI flavor of ASpellProxy in LookOut 4 will enable the use of personal dictionaries. If you do not plan to enable this feature, there is no reason to use AspellProxy with LookOut 4.
The CGI application is compiled natively for the most popular platforms that Communigate Pro supports. It uses the Gnu aSpell libraries - on most system GNU Aspell has to be installed separately. For the unsupported platform, a Perl script (which is less efficient but still works) is supplied instead.
The XIMMS script does NOT require the Gnu aSpell libraries to be installed, but requires aSpell itself to be integrated in CGP as you would do for standard spell checking in WSSP skins or Communigate Pronto!™.
