Installing Dictionaries

If you have Speckie installed, all dictionaries can be installed by selecting the 'Open' option when prompted, after clicking the link to download. Alternatively, double clicking the downloaded .sdinstall file will also install the dictionary.


Once installation is completed, start an instance of Internet Explorer. It should prompt you to enable Speckie. If it does, select the Enable button. If you don't receive a prompt, you'll have to enable Speckie manually. In Internet Explorer, under the Tools menu, select the Manage add-ons menu item. In the appearing window, find Speckie in the list of add-ons, select it, then click the Enable button. Once Speckie is enabled, it will function in new windows/tabs only, not any existing windows/tabs.


To configure Speckie, you'll need to access the Speckie Settings. You can access the Settings via the main Tools menu in Internet Explorer, via the context menu of an edit field or by navigating Internet Explorer to about:Speckie.
