Bug Description

Ubuntu has automatic spell checking turned on in various applications. I write in three languages regularly, and in a fourth occasionally (though pretty rarely), and every application is always wrong about the language I'm using. I'd really rather not have to figure out how to switch languages or turn off spell checking in every application, so I'd like a global setting to turn off spell checking in all applications.

Should be 'wishlist'. Maybe this could be implemented in the language selector. I'm assigning it now, feel free to reassign it when you find someplace better for it.

The role of language-selector in this respect is that it pulls spell check dictionaries when you install languages. Can't see how a global feature for this would work. Closing.
