5 Best Spelling and Grammar Checking Tools For Error Free Writing

Digitization has completely eroded the writing on paper and so the grammar. Or I would say grammatically correct writing skills. Most of the people who use any writing software, just type anything without attention to the spelling and then hit the spell-check. 

Office suites like Microsoft Office, Open Office, Google Docs also provide grammar checking facilities making everyone lazy and downgrading the importance of vocabulary and grammatical skills. But do you think all this software' are really working correctly?

As far as when it comes to Grammar, most of them do not. As far as MS Word is concerned, it is fine for spell checking but when it comes to grammar, it fails miserably.

If you are a writer, make your digital communication for professional use, you must consider using an additional grammar checker.

Grammarly is the most famous grammar and spelling checker. Available as a browser extension and works in a browser. It has a PC software that can correct your grammar in Office suits like Microsoft Word and others. The web interface allows you to upload a pre-written file and check your mistakes or you can copy-paste the complete text for checking.
For most of the users, the free account is fine, but if you are into specialized writing skills, you may opt for a pro account which is a paid account.

Ginger is an excellent free software for check spelling and it is an expert in grammar. I just started using it and tested Ginger on the same document I already had checked the spelling and grammar using MS Word. I find around 6 very important mistakes. What is the most important thing Ginger do is check every word in context with the complete sentence. 

Ginger, once installed, remains silent in the notification bar and keeps monitoring the text editor, whether it is a browser-based or an installed software. As soon as it finds a text editor to focus, a small pop-up button comes at the top of the screen. If you want to start checking spelling and grammar, just hit the 'F2' button or you can click it.

Ginger is available as a browser extension for Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, and Mozilla Firefox. Ginger is also available as stand-alone Mac and Windows software. You can download the Android keyboard app also.
