Ever since the upgrade to OS Yosemite, I've noticed the automatic spelling correction has been ruthless and fast. Working in an IT field and using quite a few TLAs (three letter acronyms), this led to a lot of backspacing and correcting the auto-correct and causing lots of frustration. Finally, I decided that the auto-correction simply had to be turned off, this is how you do it.

This will turn off automatic spelling correction, however incorrectly spelled words will still be underlined with a red dotted line.

First, go to the System Preferences and click on Keyboard.

Then, select the Text tab and untick the Correct spelling automatically option.
That's it! OS X will not try to correct all your misspelled words on its own any more!
