Usually it's used to indicate a quoted passage that contains grammatical or spelling errors has retained it's original form.

It means the writer didn't make the error, the speaker did.

[Spelling is correct] meaning if they're quoting someone and a word is not spelled right that it should reflect in the quote accurately that that is how it was spelled initially.
