How to fix spell check in Microsoft Teams?

Microsoft Teams spell check

Today, I want to share my experience with the spell check feature in Microsoft Teams.

In Microsoft Teams, I like to enable Spell Check. Despite its great benefits, I noticed that it does not work for me. But why? Besides the English language, my computer is also installed with a second language. As far as I can tell, Microsoft Teams does not appreciate that I am bilingual. 🙂 Let’s have a look.

Before I proceed, I want to mention that you should check your Microsoft Teams settings. Choose Spell check in the Options tab.

Go to Setting > General and Enable spell check

Let’s get back to the problem I was having.

The screenshot below is from Microsoft Teams. You noticed that the word “mispeled” wasn’t underlined? (See screenshot below)

The word “mispeled” is not underlined here.

Let’s take a look at my Settings and see what language I have set. Go to Start > Settings > Date & Time and click on Language. See my example. I have Bosnian as an additional language.

I have set Bosnian as my secondary language on my computer. This is why my spell check does not work.

Next, I will select the language and remove it. You can see below that I only have English.

Because I removed the second language, I can go back to Microsoft Teams and re-open it or re-enable Spell check.

Close Microsoft Teams and re-open it. The Spell check feature works now without any problems, as you can see from the example.

The spell check is working here, as you can see. 

Microsoft needs to fix this issue. In the meantime, I’ll install/remove my second language as needed.
