OS X V10.4 :: Create A Script That Will Change The Language From English (US) To English (UK) In Applescript?

Apr 16, 2012

I have a around 45 OS X 10.4.11 clients in a school that I have recently installed iWorks 09 on and through this I have realised that the clients language is set to English (US) which is causing some issues in the spell checker.  I don't fancy changing the language on all of them manually so I was wondering if it was possible to write a script in AppleScript that would do this for me..

IMac :: Looking For Spelling Corrections?

Oct 13, 2009

Im a new IMAC owner.I'm running Snow Leapord OS. I see when I am typing that if the computer detects a spelling mistake, it underlines the word in red. Is there a way I can change it to the correct spelling or are they just warning me that it is wrong and I have to figure out the correct spelling on my own?

Software :: Spelling And Grammar Function Gone?

Oct 19, 2009

I have Office 2004 for Mac running on OSX10.3.9 on an eMac. In Word, under Tools, the Spelling and Grammar function is gone although when typing, errors are underlined as usual. On other user accounts on the eMac, the Spelling and Grammar function is there under Tools.

What gives/ How can i get it back?

Would trashing a pref file help? If so, which one?

OS X :: Spelling Auto Correction Of Capitals

Apr 14, 2010

I've just managed to turn on the 'Correct Spelling Automatically' option in Safari (and other Apple apps) by right clicking in a text field and choosing 'Spelling and Grammar -> Correct Spelling Automatically' But one thing that I find myself doing a lot, and would like to correct is problems like typing e.g. PAtrick has a MAc -- holding that shift key just too long. Anybody know if there's auto-correction for this? I know there is in Pages and Word (under prefs) but can't seem to find it for Safari, Mail, TextEdit etc.

Applications :: What Happened To Check Spelling Before Sending?

Nov 4, 2010

My boss is VERY used to the feature in Entourage where it forces her to check spelling before the email sends, right after clicking "Send."

YES... I know Outlook now underlines misspelled words in red. But thats not enough...she wants that feature back, and I can't find it.

Applications :: Switch Between IWork And Spelling Dictionaries?

Sep 14, 2007

Just started using Pages for Word Processing, so far I am more impressed with it than I thought and have started using it more than NeoOffice but one gripe is the spellchecker. I can't find any way to change the dictionary from 'American English' to well.. 'English English'!

I've changed every possible OS setting I can find to UK English but it still claiming that words like 'colour' is spelled wrong!?

Anyone know how to switch this over?

Safari :: Change Default Spelling Dictionary?

Jun 9, 2012

How does one change the default spelling dictionary for Safari on Windows? For the Mac, it changes in response to the default locale, but on Windows, it just sets to American English and you cannot change it anywhere I can see. All my locale information in Windows is set to UK English.In fact on some websites, like this one, the spelling checker seems to be disabled! I'm on Windows 7 64-bit, BTW, running Safari 5.1.7?

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Cannot Disable Correct Spelling Automatically

Apr 7, 2012

I cannot disable the Correct Spelling Automatically feature. Rather, I can, but once I close and reopen the application it will be reenabled. I first noticed the issue when I upgraded from Trillian 1.2.20 to 1.2.40, but I just tested this in TextEdit and the issue exists there as well.

OS X :: Apple Mail Auto Check Spelling In Multiple Languages?

Apr 18, 2009

new to apple, used to Thunderbird (window version) that detect your language and check the spelling automatically. I write emails everyday in 3 languages and so far what i do is: in a new email, right clic to open a menu, then clic spelling and grammar / clic show spelling and grammar / choose your language / close the menu. Mac is great, there MUST be a plug in or a faster way.

Mac Pro :: Oxford English Dictionary For OS X?

Aug 17, 2006

By default OS X ships with the Oxford American Dictionary installed. I happen to be English, and would like to have my spelling and dictionary done in English English (with words like colour, aluminium, realise, through, etc.) as opposed to American English.

Does anybody know if it's possible to download a new dictionary, or change the installed American dictionary to be an English one?
