Spellcheck is automatically turned on for text boxes, but can't be dismissed
When adding a text box to a report, spellcheck automatically analyzes the contents and highlights words not in it's dictionary with the familiar red squiggle. There is no way to dismiss this squiggle, meaning that the highlighting is always present. There is no way to disable spellcheck via options either.

Irritating indeed, but there's a workaround : "Just go to another page and back anytime the line occurs." Found here https://community.powerbi.com/t5/Desktop/Unnecessary-Autocorrection/td-p/57697
Just tried and it works
I still have the same problem

any updates on this 3 year old idea? with the amount of customization, company specific terminology, and acronyms used in BI this seems just silly.
I dont need spellchecking personally, please add option to disable. This is very annoying especially if your language is not English.
This enhancement is still pending spell check is still not available.

Can't believe this has been outstanding sing Jul last year!

I agree that we should be able to add names to the dictionary, its very annoying currently because the eye is drawn immediately to the red underscore...

is it posible to choose the autocorrect language in powerBI or configure it any way ?
I came here and added a vote, however Amit's comment below is 100% correct and works. Still blame MS for not making it more obvious though ;)
This is a bad issue as company names will be spell-checked during a live presentation and it takes away from the aesthetics of the dashboard. It is very distracting and should be an easy fix

Just FYI, the red squiggle disappears if we move / click on a different page and come back. It also disappears if any filter is clicked on the same page

Even words that Microsoft Word finds are OK can be flagged as incorrect. It would be nice to be able to either ignore these words, add them to whatever dictionary Power BI is using, or disable spellchecking entirely.

This is very annoying as company names show up with a "red" highlight that I cannot fix
Why have it if you can't control it?
This is highly irritating.
