Microsoft Editor is a grammar and spelling checking tool that will help you to avoid possible typos while writing anything anywhere within your Web Browser. Microsoft was having this spelling correction and grammar checking feature on their Word products already. Now, it is available on other Softwares outside Microsoft Apps. Let’s say that you are writing an important email or posting a casual update on your Facebook wall, Microsoft Word will find any mistake and correct it for you.
Grammarly is the direct competitor for Microsoft Editor and let’s see how Microsoft Editor competes with the most popular grammar and spell checking tool, Grammarly. Microsoft’s browser extension is available for both Google Chrome and Edge web browsers. You can go to the store and install it right away. On the other hand, Grammarly is also available for a number of other browsers including Chrome, Firefox, Edge, Safari, etc. Microsoft might add support for Safari and Firefox in the future.
As of now it supports 20+ different languages like French, Spanish, German, etc and lets you write amazing content in both casual or formal manner.
In a blog post, Microsoft said, “With the release of Microsoft Editor’s standalone browser extension, Editor now moves with you across the web so you can easily write clear, accurate content anywhere you want. Whether you are posting casually on Facebook or LinkedIn or writing in-depth for a site like Medium, you can create with confidence knowing Editor will flag misspelled words and grammatical errors,”
Microsoft Editor comes with two options, the first one is the free version with basic spell check and grammar correction. The second one is a paid option with advanced level correction and word suggestions to polish your document in a better manner.
