Ah, the -p option. Read about that long ago and somehow haven't had a reason to use it the last few years. Just tried it and already within a minute found one typo! If there were a simple way to omit all math and diagram content, this may be the way to go.

That pdf2text appears to be Microsoft-only :(

I'm not sure what it does with figures, but Lout has a plain text
output mode which can be enabled by running lout with the -p flag.
pdf2text could also be used to convert your final PDF output instead.
Once in text format, you could spell-check it with aspell, or any of a
bunch of spell-checkers.
