Thanks for the report.
Can you please let us know:
- which language is the text in?
- which dictionary are you using for spellchecking?
Comment 2 Lakshmi 2023-11-13 10:52:12 UTC
The text language is Kannada and dictionary is Kannada to English translation

Comment 4 Stéphane Guillou (stragu) 2023-11-14 10:13:24 UTC
I tested with the text set to English (US) and the stock English dictionary that comes with LO.
Both words are recognised as spelling errors, that's true.
- Infosys: as far as I can tell, this is a proper noun for an Indian company, I wouldn't add it to the dictionary. I'm not sure how commonly it is used to abbreviate "information system". In any case, you can add to your personal dictionary with right-click > Add to dictionary.
- Sri: should be accepted, at least as part of "Sri Lanka". Marco, what do you think?

It exists in the British Dictionary:

The US dictionary is maintained by Kevin Atkinson, and I believe two or three years have gone by since his last update.

Not much I can do.
