To Make the Iñupiaq Spellchecker functional with Microsoft Word:
As you type: To set the MS Word Spellchecker to check words "as you type:" select Options from the Tools menu. Check the box next to "Check Spelling as You Type" then click OK.
Run the Spellchecker after text is typed: Press F7 or select "Spelling and Grammar" from the Tools menu.
Running the Spellchecker will show the words that don't have matches in the Iñupiaq spellchecking list. However, suggested spellings might appear to be weird because the Iñupiaq font is not reflected in the suggested spellings box. Choosing to have Word check spelling as you type may be a better option.
Suggestion: If you choose to have spelling checked as you type, a squiggly red line appears under each word without a match in the Iñupiaq Spellchecker list. Correct typos and leave words that are correctly typed. Then when you're finished with a section, add to your Iñupiaq Spellchecker list by running the Spellchecker then selecting "Add" whenever there is a correctly spelled word that isn't recognized simply because that word isn't yet in the Iñupiaq Spellchecker list.Also:
