I have a page layout with a couple of TaxonomyFieldControls on it. When I run the spell checker in the ribbon the taxonomy fields are getting flagged with spelling errors. I don't want the taxonomy fields to be included in the spell check.

I solved this problem for the UserField control (People Picker) and the SPFieldTargetToControl control (Audience Targeting) by using javascript to add the class "ms-spellcheck-false" and setting the attribute "excludeFromSpellCheck" to true for the html elements generated by those controls. However, the same fix does not work for the TaxonomyFieldControl.

Has anybody run into this and found a solution?

  • That post is useful for sharepoint controls that render textareas and inputs. The TaxonomyFieldControl renders an input control but also some spans. The spans are being checked by the spell checker as well. Applying the class "ms-spellcheck-false" and adding the "excludeFromSpellCheck" attribute to the span don't seem to prevent the spell checker from processing the contents. – brennaman3 Jun 26 '15 at 14:34
