Description of WinEst

The system for spelling checking WinEst for Microsoft Office detects and marks the incorrectly written words in a text and suggests the most probable candidates to correct the errors. WinEst offers the entire potential of the contemporary spelling correction: proficiently compiled dictionary, which contains over a million and a half words, and replacement suggestions, which are ordered according to their probability.

WinEst is based on the Electronic Grammar Dictionary of Bulgarian, developed at the Department of Computational Linguistics, which contains over 85 000 words. It contains logic for detection of careless mistakes (wrong key pressed, letter swapping, skipped letters or extra letters), identifies errors of ignorance and integrates perfectly into the dictionaries used in Microsoft Office.

WinEst uses an extremely fast and effective method for searching and detecting the correct words regardless of the text size. The functionality of the product is realised through the use of minimal acyclic deterministic automata and Levenshtein automata, which allow maximum speed, precision and coverage.
