comment is it possible to spell check PDF files?
@patrix I am on OS X and installed aspell with homebrew brew install aspell --lang=en. I then added this to my .emacs (setq ispell-program-name "/usr/local/bin/aspell") (setenv "ASPELL_CONF" nil) (autoload 'flyspell-babel-setup "flyspell-babel") (add-hook 'latex-mode-hook 'flyspell-babel-setup) Spell check an entire buffer with M-x flyspell-buffer and check a word for spellings with M-x ispell-word, choose an alternative from the numbers or add to your dictionary with i. I'm using Carbon Emacs. Other dists my need you to install emacs' aspell manually.

This did not completely answer my question since it uses a custom dictionary file and not the OS X dictionary. But it is possible that this is still the best solution so I'll accept it for now :)
