Abstract

Lotus Products could use the following solution: A spelling checker detects names only as correct, if they are in the "pool of correct words". Names have to be copied manually to "pool of correct words" when they are used in a text. This pool could be expanded by an interface which reads informations of other "word-"sources on the computer like an adressbook.
