    HI, Kinda new for the website, and i tried seaching through loads of pages for the same prob but no answers.

    am studying the manx language and thought the ipad would be good as its very easy to type, mass storage and easy to cary, but every word document that i have got has a spell checker which i cannot disable. manx has the same letters as english (except a couple), so thought would be good for it.

    i just need a word app that i can turn off or doesnt have spell checker so its not changing the words or putting a stupid red line underneath. can anybody offer any suggestions please? would be greatful for any input. thanks.

    Change your keyboard into the language you want and it will spell check it that language. You can use what ever app you want

    thanks for the reply, but unfortunatly manx is only spoke by about 400 people aprox, so unfortuantly there isn't a language setting for it. irish and scotish are also spelt differently so that wouldn't work if there is a language setting for them. but thank you. :)

    You may try to disable spell check and/or auto correction in Settings -> General -> Keyboard.

    Pages will let you disable spell checking. It's under the wrench icon, Settings.
