Thanks for fast fix. Wil try for some days before reporting.

P.S: I suggest you to add text removal before ":" also for mixed case option, such as "BiLBO:" and so on.

Why you won't use mediafire is beyond me.

Got a question about the spell checking.

After OCR I often end up with a lot of lines with "I" (capital I) actually being a l (low capital l) or L (capital L).

Words like

l'm should be I'm
L'm should be I'm
ls should be Is
lt's should be It's

When running a spell check, it happilly accepts all those Words, eventhough none of them I think is even valid English Words.

Also "Bob." became "Bob-ll

Which might be valid, but should still be pointed out by the spell checker?

I am not even sure if spell checking is an internal part of Subtitle Edit. If not I guess there is nothing to do about it.

I just think that the spell checker accepts a lot of Words, that are not even valid English words.

Maybe it is me not using it correctly. If so please let me know how to make it catch all these words.

If not, can something maybe be changed to make it catch all these words?

Thanks in advance.

@rco133: SE uses Hunspell... I would prefer not to add extra code with special OCR related hardcoded rules in the spell check.

ATM you can either:

1) Use Tools -> Fix common errors - Fix common OCR errors


2) Make your own rules via Edit -> Multiple replace

Probably half of this thread is concerned with partial solutions to a problem that should never existed in the first place.

Why do these spelling errors arrive and wherefrom? Can't the user correctly write in his own language?

Of course I know the answer. The errors comes from OCR. Geez, we do not have enough problems, we are bored, let's convert from the original subtitles to another one, to save only a couple of kB, to occupy our minds then with issues like code page (for anyone not English), L or I, # or ♫, colours, timings, positions and of course the compatibility of the result with the existing players. Players that otherwise will play the original file just perfect, and 83-years-old-age compliant.

Some people want the dash before the first line of dialogue, others request its deletion. Go figure.

Issues and problems that concern a secondary if not even non-related task of the software, a bonus functionality if you like.

Meanwhile issues that are part of the core, like loosing the position on-screen of the original subtitles (these are centered after processing) do not have time to get solved, because someone has a spelling issue with tembo-tembe subdialect and semicolons .
