Manage Spell Checking

In the Manage Spell Checking page, you can add spell checking exceptions, which are words or phrases that should be excluded from spell checking. Spell checking exceptions can typically be words, phrases or names that are not found in the default spell checking dictionary but that are still valid words, phrases or names, and you do not want the system to suggest different spelling of these terms in the Did you mean? feature.

When search users type a search phrase that corresponds to a phrase added in the Spell checking exception list, the Did you mean? feature will not suggest a correction for the search phrase.
