Help Fixing the Khmer Spelling Checker


(Nathan Wells) #1

We never used the Khmer spelling checker for LanguageTool but I noticed it is broken on the LanguageTool website

Khmer doesn’t have spaces, so with Unicode we add a zero-width space (U+200B) between the words so a spelling checker can know where the word boundary is (as well as line-break correctly).

Is there a way I can help fix this? The sentence should be broken like this:
ឃ្លា នេះ បង្ហាញ ពី ពី កំហុស វេយ្យាករណ៍ ដើម្បី បញ្ជាក់ ពី ប្រសិទ្ធភាព របស់ កម្មវិធី LanguageTool សំរាប់ ភាសាខ្មែរ។
(but with zero-width spaces, not real ones).

So it works everywhere else, just on the web page it’s broken? If so, we’re planning to rewrite that part anyway, but it might take 2-3 months.

I believe we had it turned off in the LibreOffice extension since we use Hunspell for Khmer.
But looks like it doesn’t work in the Java application on a Mac either (in fact Khmer doesn’t display correctly at all).
