*About Bake-off Task 1*

The goal of this task is to evaluate the capability of a Chinese spelling checker. The passage consisting of several sentences with/without spelling errors will be given as the input. The checker should return the locations of incorrect characters and suggest the correct characters. Each character or punctuation occupies one position for counting location. If the input contains no spelling errors, the system should return “pid, 0”. If the input contains at least one spelling errors, the output format is “pid [, location, correction]+”. Examples are given as follows:

*Example 1*:

Input: (pid= A2-0047-1) 我真的洗碗我可以去看你。 Output: A2-0047-1, 4, 希, 5, 望

*Example 2*:

Input: (pid= B2-1670-2) 在日本,大學生打工的情況是相當普偏的。 Output: B2-1670-2, 17, 遍

*Example 3*:

Input: (pid= B2-1903-7) 我也是你的朋友,我會永遠在你身邊。 Output: B2-1903-7, 0
