You can change the dictionary from English (UK) to English (AU), but I forget how. :/

Anyway my computer corrects 'colour' to 'color'. So I'll let you all decide if it's British or not.

... Because I'm not sure :'(

My Word is set on English (UK). It doesn't correct color, center, etc... but it puts a read squiggly line under them :3

It corrects aluminum to aluminium and theater to theatre, though.

However, stuff like organisation vs organization, it realises (or realizes) both spellings. Also, it auto-corrects sulfur to sulphur. Take that, Twenty-First Century Science.

My chrome's spellchecker also apparently doesn't like American spellings. Idk if you can set the dictionary or not, though.

It's changing (colour) from British to (color)American. Hope it helps :)
