Microsoft Word Autocorrect Tool for Bahá’í Words
by David House
(last mod 03/24/18)
This Word tool contains about 180 ‘Bahá’í words’— mostly proper nouns. Using the tool, you can add these words and phrases to Word’s ‘autocorrect’ entries and its custom dictionary, so that your copy of Word will easily and instantly provide you with these words properly spelled (God willing; corrections welcome) and formatted according to the system of transliteration established by the beloved Guardian, who said:
“I feel confident that all the friends will from now on follow this system and adhere scrupulously and at all times to this code in all their writings.” (Shoghi Effendi, Bahá’í Administration, p. 43, March 12, 1923)
The tool (v. 2018-02(a)) is available here: house_microsoft_word_autocorrect_wordlist.docm.
