I'm not a Mac expert, but Tw doesn't support Aspell directly, AFAIK. It
comes with its own binding to the hunspell spell checker. See
http://code.google.com/p/texworks/wiki/SpellingDictionaries for more
information about the spell checking system in Tw.


PS: Support for other spell checkers like Aspell is planned, but not yet
implemented due to some cross-platform issues.
