This project aims to develop spell checkers in three African languages as part of the ANLoc project, as well as related tools to help in such projects. CorpusCatcher and Spelt are part of these tools.
The project aims to build spell checkers for Zulu, Yoruba and Gikuyu. They will be implemented for the Hunspell spell checker for maximum impact.
GtkSpell used in many GTK+ applications didn't always support Hunspell, but now it seems to become a reality with most distributors patching their versions to use Enchant which enables Hunspell (and other checkers)
