With Tansa Proof XTra for SAXoTEXT automatic spelling checks and proofreading can be made.
To carry out proofreading of the written text Tansa Spelling Control is selected, in practice consisting of two parts.
The first part of the proof is a dialogue in which Tansa finds the words to which it has found alternatives and which may have been misspelled. It is up to the user whether all the words found are to be replaced, or if it only applies for the words acknowledged by the user.
In the second part of the proof Tansa finds all the words it does not know and consequently has no alternative for. Here, the user can change the words he wants to change.
The Tansa Server
The Tansa server analyses the text produced, forming a profile with the exact orthography and terminology used at the newspaper in question. Naturally, it will take a learning period, before the server is optimized.
Tansa automatically corrects about 80 per cent of all typing errors once the system has passed the learning period.
Further, Tansa checks personal names, place names, titles and other specific words, which are not checked in ordinary check spelling programs.
Tansa analyses groups of words in order to correct e.g. two many errors to too many errors.
In Tansa it is also possible to make routines for specific words to be typed in a certain way. If, for instance, instead of the word salesman the word sales consultant is to be used, then this is done automatically when the article is sent for proof on the Tansa server.
