Konqueror and Spell Check

How do I disable spell check. It's so annoying since I write sometimes in Spanish, using abreviations, or even some technical terms and this feature of Konqueror keeps highlighting terms I know that are spelled correctly (including all the Spanish words ).

I thought it was quite easy to disable Spell Check, since the Office applications have similar tools that can be quickly disabled.

Spelling in Konqueror is part of the KDE desktop. To change configuration settings;

Start--> System --> Configuration --> KDE --> Components --> Spell Checker.

I have not tried to disable it. You can add your own dictionary, and add your own words.

Hope this helps.
