Excellent tool for proofreading

As a researcher, I must routinely compose scientific articles and academic reports. In my case, I frequently make errors in my writing, such as misspellings, grammatical errors, incorrect word choice, punctuation errors, improper sentence structure, etc. I address these issues by utilizing ProWritingAid. It addresses the majority of the aforementioned concerns and enhances the quality of writing.

PROS

It has a special feature known as "data visualization" that helps to assess my writing. This feature really helps me to identify the lacking in my writing. It works nicely with Microsoft Word, a variety of browsers, and email. The most incredible thing about it is that it can recognize an incorrect word in a sentence and then offer the correct term to replace it. In addition, tools like spell check, grammar correction, sentence structure suggestions, and word suggestions all come in handy when I'm writing essays.

CONS

The most annoying thing is that if I make a sentence with passive voice, it unnecessarily detects this structure and suggests changing the passive voice structure. In academic writing, I have to often use the passive voice structure. Secondly, I would say it is costly as compared to other similar tools, especially for the student.

Reasons for switching to ProWritingAid

After reading some reviews of ProWritingAid, I realized that ProWritingAid will be the best option for my task.

Useful software if you know what you want from it.

Useful software if you know what you want from it. I couple it with macros and other professional software to perform my duties in my fiction editing business. I will be buying it again, as I have integrated the parts I like into my daily working.

PROS

Things I really like and use daily: 1. Check for echoes 2. Repetition/word phrase overuse. 3. Punctuation check

CONS

Things I don't like or use: 1. Working on long documents is difficult 2. Analyzing the whole document is hard, and it crashes my word, this caused me to lose time and money. Hence why I only choose the above checks. 3. The style guides were difficult to set up, so i never used it to its full potential

Reason for choosing ProWritingAid

It was the most useful for what I needed it for. Lots of choices, and it was accurate. Takes some getting used to. but once you have cracked it, it is easy enough to work with.

Great Tool for Extremely Short Texts, Monumental Fail Otherwise

Sharing my two cents about ProWritingAid that I purchased a lifetime licence for: If you're reviewing texts about 300 - 400 words in length at maximum, you'll be happy with the tool. Otherwise, it's not worth the money. If you need a short-term solution, then by all means go for it but don't pay a buck for actually using the SW. I've been using the Word add-on for over three months now and if you want to use most of the tools on more than 800 words, the tool simply can't handle the 'load.' Usually, it breaks off after a minute or so and you can run the check again which normally doesn't help. You end up wasting a ton of your time and accomplish nothing at all. While the language advice and the correction improvements you get recommended are helpful, you're better off using Grammarly or another alternative if you're reviewing long chunks of text in one go and don't want to constantly copy-paste from Word to their interface and back which is a pain if you have to do that daily like myself.

PROS

Totally intuitive. If you know anything about how English, grammar and vocabulary alike, finding your way through the options and how they work will be a breeze. No learning curve. The tool as well as the report are perfectly self-explanatory. Easy-to-use online interface.

CONS

Useless add-on when dealing with texts of 800+ words. Constant copy-pasting to and from the online interface wasting your time.

Reasons for switching to ProWritingAid

I prefer to purchase software rather than rent it (i.e. renew subscriptions) but I rather pay for regular Grammarly subscriptions now that I know what ProWritingAid has to offer. I can always make more money but the time wasted hoping ProWritingAid would actually return any results when it did not is gone for good. Copy-pasting text from Word to their online interface is not a long-term solution if you're handling dozens of pages of text every day.

A brilliant AI editor which may need few improvement

PROS

I have been using ProWritingAid since March 2020 as a replacement of Grammarly,  as this provides lifetime subscription, which is very much cheaper compared to Grammarly. Since it uses your account to authenticate, you can install this on an unlimited device. It also provides suggestions to the sentences you have written and suggests the whole paragraph to be written in a better way. It has a diction too. It has Homonym function which checks for the incorrect word usage or the words which sounds alike and spelled differently . Another feature it includes is sticky, a function that suggests glue words which will slow down . In addition, it addresses the grammatical mistake you were making and highlights the improvement you have made. Realtime correction helps you to write an email or any documentation faster. Provides readability grade(to measure how easily a user can read your document).

CONS

Addon will slow down outlook sometimes, and it may even crash. I would love to see updates every quarter. Android app will definitely help in composting emails and writing a document in tablet.
