Proofreader not doing the job you want? Ginger.


I've been trialing Ginger Proofreader and grammar checker. I'm still using the free version. 

It did find a number of missed words and words like 'other' which should have been 'another' 'into' which should have been 'in'. Also, it found where I had typed grey instead of gray (US spelling). So, I would say that 50% of the time it was great. The rest of the time, Ginger was highlighting words or sentences that were already correct and suggesting new variations that were wrong.

I'll continue to use the basic free version for as long as I can but I'll not be buying the software anytime soon as I feel it still needs work by the developers.

I did read that a blogger purchased a basic version of Ginger for $30 which I will consider if it's still on offer. I couldn't find this offer so I'll stick with the free version for now. 

Here's the link if you want to try it out yourself:
