Thank you, Joe.  With JAWS 2020 I found what I needed in text processing in the settings centre.

You are in the right area with Setting Center.

  1. Open Word.
  2. Go to the Jaws Manager.
  3. Navigate to the Settings Center
  4. In the Search box type “Spelling”
  5. One of the results will be Detect Spelling while navigating
  6. There will be several options one of which is none.

I did not get too specific about how to use items such as Settings Center. If you need more instruction please let me know.

Hope this helps,

Well friends, I’m having an interesting week – moved from a “dumb” phone to my first IPhone and also updated from JAWS 17 to JAWS 2020.  My new JAWS tells me I have “misspelling” on various words – probably American rather than my Canadian spelling.  I’ve gone to the settings centre but can’t find where to silence such prompts and sound effects.  Any help gratefully received!
