I am using flyspell for the first time. For word with "^" inside, it looks like they are read as two separate words.
For example, below, the word "maître" is underlined, and the word proposed start with "t"
I understood from my first research on the web, that it might come from utf-8 not set for ispell.
I tried to change the value of
ispell-encoding8-command initially set to
(setq ispell-encoding8-command "--encoding=utf-8" )
but it did not work
Ispell : 3.1.20 Aspell : 0.60.8
