    IN Pages on my iMac I can teach the vocabulary to accept unusual words as correct, and not needing to be corrected. For example I can tell Pages to accept " cogitans", a Latin word, as acceptable.

    How do I change or add to the spell checking vocabulary on the iPad?

    Hi and welcome to the Forum!

    I don't think there is a direct way to do this, but a very clever workaround is to create a list in your contacts app and add words in the notes field. Hope this helps.

    Yes there are 2 Apps that you can make calls with, Viber and Skype, both very good apps. Of course the people you call will have to have these Apps activated too.
