Tt seems thet thee speell chacker is working rather unpredicatably even on Moodle.org.
Have tried setting it up on my local test server which is a Windows system. The use of an installed aspell program is not working for me. I think looking at the code this may just be a windows problem. The code uses a temp directory location hard coded into the code which would not be available on Windows /tmp.
Has anyone got the spell checker working in Moodle 2.0 on a Windows platform with 'Spell engine' set to 'PSpellShell'? Or indeed spell engine set to PSpell?
For everyones reference referring to the code it seems that spell engine :
- PSpellShell uses an installed version of aspell. Moodle accesses aspell directly via the command line interface. This is the only setting that uses the path to aspell as set in the admin settings.
- PSpell uses the php library PSpell which probably uses aspell depending on how PSpell was set up.
- Google Engine uses Google web services to check spellings and get suggestions for fixes.
