Grammarly Spell Checker & Grammar helps you write more accurately by suggesting changes in various language areas, such as spelling, grammar and style. It is available not only as the desktop app being reviewed here but also as extensions for various browsers and word processors.
The application has a nice and intuitive layout. Although it has a built-in editor to compose your text directly, most users would prefer to use a word processor of their choice and then import the document to the tool.
Grammarly Spell Checker & Grammar works by checking your writing production against an online database, which contains diverse types of errors. It alerts you about different kinds of mistakes and errors using a color code. Moreover, you can learn about the nature of your mistakes by hovering your mouse over the marked words or phrases.
Fortunately, Grammarly Spell Checker & Grammar can be personalized to your specific needs. For instance, you can create a dictionary for personal use, which can contain words that are not found in standard dictionaries. Likewise, it supports various general variants of English, including British, American, Canadian and Australian. Yet, personalization can go much deeper when you declare your intent, style and tone. What is more, you can specify an audience (general, knowledgeable and expert) as well as a given domain (academic, technical, and creative). more
