Subject:Spell, grammar, and style checker for Firefox... From:David Neeley <dbneeley -at- gmail -dot- com> To:TECHWR-L <techwr-l -at- lists -dot- techwr-l -dot- com> Date:Tue, 2 Feb 2010 10:44:01 +0200
Automattic, the company behind WordPress, purchased a tool called
"After the Deadline" this past year to add spell, grammar, and style
check capabilities to WordPress.
Witnin the past few days, they have released an add-on for Firefox
that extends this capability to the browser. It works with Web forms,
web-based email (I tested it on Gmail a few moments ago), and
apparently with any sort of text you compose in your browser.
There is a video of the extension in use there, as well as
documentation and FAQs.
Are you looking for one documentation tool that does it all? Author,
build, test, and publish your Help files with just one easy-to-use tool.
