Sami dictionaries for OpenOffice.org 3.x

Install dictionaries

The proofing tools for OpenOffice.org are still in BETA. Although they are maturing, there are known linguistic bugs in there, especially related to compounds.
These installation instructions are for OpenOffice.org 3.x. We also have installation instructions for OpenOffice.org 2.4.x (English only).

The sami spellers for OpenOffice.org can be downloaded here. The downloaded speller plugin looks like:
Extension icon and filename

Depending on web browsers and on operating systems this file will either be opened automatically by OpenOffice.org or saved to the disk. If the file was saved, then double-click the downloaded file to install it.

If you got the proofing tools on the Divvun CD, just double-click the speller plugin (see icon above).

OpenOffice.org will be started and installs the extension. You will be asked if you want to continue installing the extension. Press "OK" to install it. When the speller is installed a window like below will appear. Press Close to continue.
