Spell check is good at detecting certain typos and recognizing many misspelled words. Unfortunately, you send the wrong message when you accidentally type “let’s grab a bear after work” in an email.
Unless you’re planning on snatching a grizzly on the way home from the office, you’ve just made a typo that your spell check program won’t catch! It’s even grammatically correct, so you won’t see the green squiggly line underneath.
Ginger Proofreader knows what you meant to say. It’s a free download that can analyze the context of your sentences and catch errors most spelling and grammar checkers will miss.
It works on anything you type in Microsoft Word, Outlook, Internet Explorer and Firefox. Just download the program and activate the browser plug-ins.
