[texworks] Spell checking libraries for TexWorks

I installed MacTex and TeXworks on a new MacBook Pro with MacOS 10.15.4, which works fine. But I am unable to install the spell checker cocoAspell, which cannot be installed automatically anymore because of “notarisation” by Apple. I installed it by hand. The installer claimed successfully installed, but it does not work. 

Can I try to use Hunspell with Openoffice dictionaries with MacTex?
