I'm writing a paper in my tech editing course about the use of
computer grammar checkers in tech editing and writing. Are they
used at all in this field? I'd really like some input from anyone
who'd like to comment.
The specific focus of this paper is the effectiveness of grammar checkers.
Would or should anyone in tech editing rely on them at all? Are there
any versions that are superior to others and why? Also, what is the
greatest shortcoming of grammar checkers?
I'd greatly appreciate comments or responses from anyone who's used
a grammar checker, or at least has an opinion about them.

Thanks in advance,
