Becca,

The WordPress dev team have a product called "After the Deadline," which I like a lot. They have an OpenOffice extension, but no Word plugin. 8-( However, their demonstration site, http://www.polishmywriting.com/ lets you paste something into it for checking. I'm reasonably certain they don't hang on to the data, but your supervisor may want to clear the browser cache when done.

Hope this helps.

Importance: Low

I'm asking this here and also at the word-pc list.
ÂI received the following query from one of my supervisors:
Â
"Do you know if there is a standalone spell/grammar checker application commercially available?
Second preference would be a website, but that can raise security concerns. I have found spellcheck.net, but donât use it.
I canât stand how Microsoft has gutted Wordâs spell/grammar check over the years"
Â
Does anyone know of a Word add-in or stand-alone spelling and grammar checker, like he's asking for? I did point him to a readability analysis website, but I'm not sure that's what he's looking for.
Â
I'm also not sure what he means by MS gutting the spelling and grammar checking... hasn't that been pretty standard for quite awile?
Â
We're using Word 10 in Windows 7.
Â
I did find this site:
Â
http://www.gingersoftware.com/features/grammar_checker.html
Â
Does anybody know anything about it?
Thanks!


Becca
