If you're passionate about your spelling, my work is for you. The best spelling for Microsoft Office, Internet Explorer and macOS for Australians, is the preferred Australian English spelling. My old open source work is used by millions of Australians as the dictionary used in Google Chrome, Firefox and many open source projects. My latest and best work is now available here. You owe it to yourself and your writing, to use the best tools possible.
Apple computers come with a built-in Australian English dictionary. However many people end up not being happy with Apple's Australian English dictionary, as it contains words which many don't consider to be the primary Australian English spelling. The problem is not unique to Apple and affects many programs which originate from overseas.
The preferred Australian English spelling dictionary has been built from the ground up over a number of years. Words are checked against the leading authoritative dictionaries used in Australia and further checked against actual usage in Australia. By beginning from scratch it has been possible to build a quality dictionary and not include the rubbish that may exist in an existing list of words previously created.
NOTE: The preferred Australian English Spelling dictionary is a work in progress. Whilst it is sufficient to meet the needs of many people there is still work to go. Should you find omissions or even disagree with a particular word, you are welcome to submit words for review and inclusion or removal.
This is the preferred Australian English spelling dictionary built for Australians by an Australian.
The following are the type of problems found in the current Australian dictionary provided with Apple macOS.
The preferred Australian English Spelling dictionary made available on this page provides a solution to these problems and provides you the easiest way to use the preferred Australian English spelling on Apple macOS computers.
