This is happening because, by default, Voiceover announces text that is under 
the cursor instead of speaking the letter to the right of the cursor, as 
windows does. To change this, press VO+F8 and select "Verbosity" from the 
categories table. VO+right until you get to the "text" tab and select it with 
VO+Space. Find the pop-up button that says, "when moving the cursor," and 
change the selection to "Speak text to the right of the cursor."

As for using the spellchecker, a couple of things. First, find the miss-spelled 
word and press VO+shift+M to bring up a menu that will have a list of suggested 
corrections and pick one. There is also a command to open the spellchecker that 
Keith mentioned, I know it's something+semi-colon, but can't remember what the 
rest of the keys in the combination are. LOL.

HTH a little anyway,
