Is there a way to change the settings that it uses UK English instead of US English.
Open up TextEdit or Safari
Then Edit - Spelling and Grammar - Show Spelling and in the box at the bottom select British English
And in Firefox: Prefs > Advanced > General > Languages > Choose > English [en]
Still has problems with some Br spelling though eg. recognise vs reconize. Just tell FFox to learn the word by adding it to the dictionary (R-click the word).
how do we change spelling settings to English UK for pages, numbers and keynote?
it seems that to make my Mac speak British English I should have it set as 'British English' in the list of languages under 'International' in the 'Personal' section of the system preferences.
But my Mac does not have an option for 'British English' and only has 'English'. Please somebody help me before I throw the stupid machine at the wall!
I am using a Macbook and I have the Leopard OS.
As I say, I want the system to speak British and not to have to set every individual program...
British English as in English English as in English isn't even in the list as default? Disappointing Apple.
