LibreOffice (along with loads of other software) uses Hunspell
dictionaries for spell-checking. You can get them here .
Hunspell  is a spell checker similar to Aspell. (A Windows port is
available in the EZWinPorts .) Unlike Aspell, it can’t parse TeX
files. One way around this is to convert the TeX files into plain text
(maybe using Pandoc or DeTeX?) and spell-checking just the text. I tried
this, but I found it quite cumbersome and since switched to the build-in
spell-checker in my editor.
PDF files could probably be spell-checked in a similar way.
