The Jèrriais spellchecker file has been greatly expanded with very many complete verb conjugations. Previously, the spellchecker recognised infinitives as given in the dictionaries but not all tenses, moods and variant forms. It’s still not 100% for all verbs, but it’s getting there. The instructions have also been updated as subsequent Wndows upgrades had rendered the previous simple instructions inadequate. Installation is still quite simple for Word, etc. but finding the right folder in one’s personal installation of Windows is more roundabout than it was. (For installation for Firefox, see also “Spellchecker for Firefox“)
