SharePoint offers the "Spell Check" feature in its "Rich Text Fields"

In our custom SharePoint application,we have utilised the "SharePoint Spell Check Web service".

There has been a few bugs that has been identified with the SharePoint Spell Check,The Microsoft's QFE Team was involved in fixing the same and delivering back the "private hot fixes".

It was observed that the "dictionary language" defaults to "English US" although the "locale = English Australia".

This issue is being currently investigated by the Microsoft Support Engineers and also by myself.

There is a likelihood that,this could be because of the "language" selection during the install of SharePoint or may be it's a bug..

Will keep you guys posted soon.

I'm not sure if this would solve your problem but I was looking through the following file C:\Program Files\Common Files\microsoft shared\Web Server Extensions\12\TEMPLATE\LAYOUTS\1033\SpellCheckEntirePage.js

after researching this on

and came across args.lang=L_Language_Text;

Setting this to our Locale ID in the master page sets the spell checker to use our settings.

I put the following in at the bottom of the page (our locale being South Africa)

<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">
L_Language_Text = 7177;

I tried changing the locale everywhere else and it didn't help. This was the easiest solution for me.
