How can we improve Bing Spell Check?

Improve spell checking of people names

I have encountered some problems with the spell check API changing people names that are actually spelled correctly. Examples are Paskal & Nicolaas.
This causes searches downstream in my app (using LUIS) to not work as expected because the changed name cannot be found. I have noticed similar issues with company names and some acronyms.
Ideally similar functionality that exist in Microsoft Word would be nice. This allows the user to add words to the dictionary for future reference. I realize though that the Bing Spell Checker is based on a different architecture using Machine Learning etc. so this might not be feasible.
