using OOO 3.3.0.

At least not on Ubuntu 10.4 / OOo 3.2. Installed the extension, re-started OOo and pulled up a sample document; pretty much every word was flagged as miss-spelled. Even tried re-booting the system. Same results. Disabling the extension reverts back to default spell-check behavior. Language settings are whatever the standard English(USA) Ubuntu/OOo defaults are.

Kind of surprised this extension is broken given all the Linux/open source stuff listed on I see there's a plain text file containing the OpenMedSpel words ; seems like there ought to be a simple way of getting OOo to incorporate user-specific word lists. Where is this documented?
