With this update in WebSpellChecker Proofreader 1.2, we have introduced a bunch of updates to meet the requirements of the international web accessibility standards from W3C Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI).

1.2. Additional Notifications and Progress Indicators
  • Spinner. Spinner on the dialog panel that is aimed indicating the progress of proofreading. Once the proofreading process is completed, the spinner will disappear.
  • Save changes. We added an extra notification, warning you from leaving the dialog with changes unsaved (without clicking ‘Finish Checking’). This is made to prevent accidental loss of your proofreading results.

2. Grammar engine is updated for 8 languages

WebSpellChecker Server 5.2.2 supports LanguageTool 4.3. We have upgraded the version of the new 3rd party grammar engine, LanguageTool, that was integrated into WebSpellChecker as a part of our major release 5.0.0.

As a part of this upgrade new and improved grammar rules for the next languages: Catalan, Dutch, American and British English, French, German, Portuguese, Russian, and Ukrainian.

Bug Fixes

Deprecation Notes

With the release 5.2.2 we stopped support of old plugins and list of the integrations that were based on the older products.


SCAYT plugin for TinyMCE 4
WSC Dialog plugin for TinyMCE 4

However, instead we are offering much better and flexible integration with WProofreader. It can be easily integrated with almost any WYSIWYG editor, including classic HTML editable elements.
