When I'm writing in org-mode I very often make spelling mistakes which I
can go back to later to correct. So how can I jump from one mistake to
the next please?

For example -

- --8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
John likes applles but Sarah likes orangies.
- --8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---
  
So in that example how do I jump, using the keyboard only, from the
misspelled apples to the misspelled oranges so that I can correct them?

Thanks
  Sharon.

With a package like spell-fu or flyspell you'll be able to find a
command like `spell-fu-goto-previous-error'. Bind that to some
keybinding and there you go :)

If you have Flyspell mode enabled in the buffer,
flyspell-goto-next-error (bound to `C-,' by default) will jump to the
next marked word, cycling around once you've reached the last marked
word in the buffer.

There's also `M-x ispell', which provides an interface for going through
misspelled words and presents you with suggestions.

See (info "(emacs)Spelling") for more information.

i wonder why the generic next-error is not used.

Hmm, good question.  Ignoring any historical reasons for why flyspell
does what it does, a quick search on the Emacs lists makes me think at
least one open issue is how to prioritize/combine different next-error
sources:

 * https://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/emacs-devel/2018-04/msg00207.html
   87zi2esn7l.fsf@mail.linkov.net

 * https://debbugs.gnu.org/cgi/bugreport.cgi?bug=30674#8
   87a7vkrelc.fsf@mail.linkov.net

That's getting a bit off-topic for the Org mode list though...

I typically use flyspell-mode along with control-lock-mode (M-x
control-lock-enable), then I simply hit , to jump to the next word and .
to cycle the corrections.

Best wishes,
Arne

Also, if you have flyspell-mode enabled, `C-;` is bound to
`flyspell-auto-correct-previous-word`. It'll correct the last misspelled word
preceding point (though there may be correctly spelled words between point and
the misspelled word). Type `C-;` multiple times to cycle through different
correction suggestions. Because you don't need to move back to the misspelled
word to correct it, you can correct words while you type without interrupting
the flow too much.

YMMV, of course.
