In the process of our review, we made use of test content in order to find out this grammar checker accuracy. One should note this: the writing sample we used contains a great variety of grammar errors that were made intentionally. While Grammarly really did better in comparison with some other grammar check software (for instance, Word Q), this service wasn’t able to highlight as many mistakes as Writer’s Workbench. This proofreader that works in an automated way has quickly identified simple grammar errors together with errors in spelling, but, at the same time, it didn’t show better results than Microsoft Office grammar and spelling checker.
It is worth mentioning that Grammarly plagiarism detector is quite oversensitive. Editing program would point out commonly used sentences and phrases were stolen from random internet pages. However, this editing service guarantees some helpful and useful suggestions on how to do citation for the “plagiarized” content, if needed. This software also focused on when the content sentences kept going a little bit long, but, nevertheless, it did not notice when we made use of the same word again and again, several times. Most of the Grammarly software we made review for highlighted redundancy that is very good actually, for the reason that redundancy is the #1 reason people will cast doubts on your credibility.
Grammatical errors of the content are highlighted using the bright red color. Every time the user clicks on this or that error, he will notice a card popping up with detailed info about the error. Although these cards appear to be really helpful, they may be also pretty wordy and make you feel somewhat overwhelmed. Software of writing enhancement is used to help users improve the quality of writing, but if it provides them with a 4-paragraph explanation just for a little typo, they will 100% refuse to read all the messy explanations. Luckily, Grammarly provides you with “See Less” option. Moreover, you have an opportunity to avail of “thumbs down/up” buttons in order to leave feedback on their feedback.
