Machines do not now and probably never will be able to accurately
natural language.

Software CANNOT equal human in terms of linguistic skills, and machines
cannot replace technical writers any more than Eliza replaced

Software tools can help us to organize our tasks and streamline certain
processes, but they cannot replace human language and understanding.


I am interested to know what this tool does, though.
