This is experimental! Use at own risk - but looks like it could work on any OS
Its a temporary workaround here, I have changed my script so simply
add the words I run the script on to the end of my (in my case)
en_NZ.dic found in <TeXworks config area>/dictionaries/
These additions will not take effect until Tw is restarted, but
meanwhile after adding them I can tell Tw to ignore them for the
current session, and then in following session they are known.
Make a copy of you dictionary first if you are going to do this!
This is a temporary EXPERIMENTAL workaround in scripting for saving
accepted words from spell checking marks.
Use at Your own risk!
Again - MAKE a BACKUP of your current dictionary first!!!
put in any directory under your script folder.
Turn on both Read and Write permissions in Edit/Preferences/ Scripts
First usage will ask you to select your dictionary (ending in .dic).
Selected text (User selects/double clicks - first)
is added to the user's current dictionary, if no text is selected in
editor, the current dictionary is opened for editing - look at the end of
Additions do not take effect until TeXworks is started again - meanwhile for
current session, tell spell checker to ignore word after adding it.
Shortcut: Alt+H & Alt+S
