Hspell's project primary goal is to create a free Hebrew spell-checker. We have already achieved that goal, and you are invited to Download the latest version of the spell-checker.

In addition to a spell-checker, the project also produced a Hebrew morphological analyzer, which for every valid Hebrew word lists all of its possible readings (valid combinations of prefix and inflected base word).

The secondary goal of the project is to make the algorithms and dictionaries, created initially for the spell-checker, freely available. These could be used in more sophisticated research or applications that require Hebrew word lists or a Hebrew morphology engine.

Such potential application areas might include search engines, speech synthesis, and much much more. The availability of a free basis will hopefully encourage free development on top of it, to the benefit of the general Hebrew-speaking population.

What's New in This Release:
In this version, Hspell's vocabulary has grown by 1,500 more base words, reaching a total of over 22,500.
This vocabulary is now considered to be mature and large enough to satisfy most users.
As usual, this version also features other improvements and bugfixes.
