10.4: Permanently disable spell check in TextEdit
Authored by: coolsoldier on Apr 16, '09 02:38:40PM
TextEdit also supports ESC to get a list of possible completions from the spellcheck dictionary.

If I really wanted to keep students from using spell check, I'd move aside /System/Library/Services/AppleSpell.service, which disables spell checking completely. And also disable dictionary lookups by moving aside /Library/Dictionaries. I guess it all depends on how clever your students are.
