Isn't it correct to say "The Australian man is not home"?

Yes "is not home" or "isn't home" should both be correct as well

Yes. I've reported this but it hasn't been fixed.

They need to tweak this to accept English contractions like isn't, doesn't and so on. It's now even acceptable to use them in formal written communications. And use of them conversationally is pretty much universal.

They have to add all contractions by hand, I believe... :(
