Not everyone can write without making many mistakes. Most of us have to register and rewrite more than once before we get it right. But, like most people have to deal with, there’s an app for that. The name of it is Grammarly!
Let’s look at how this writing software works, what it offers, and how to use Grammarly in other programs.
What Is Grammarly?
One of the best resources for identifying grammar and spelling errors in your writing is the Grammarly app..
The online text editor uses artificial intelligence to check for poor tone, grammar, punctuation mistakes, passive voice, and sentences that are too long. Then, it gives you suggestions for appropriate replacements to improve your writing.
So, how does Grammarly work?
The online app Grammarly works clearly that everything you write is spelled correctly makes sense, and is easy to read. Grammarly tells you how to fix your work when it’s not good enough. It also has a built-in dictionary to ensure spelling is correct and to eliminate any words that are used more than once.
This writing app also checks to see if it’s easy to read. It gives you a score that shows how easy it is to read your text. Grammarly tells people to try to get a score of 60 or higher, but if they get lower than that, the program will suggest changes.
In addition to being all-inclusive, Grammarly is really easy to use, and you can use it for free or a fee (with Grammarly Premium).
How Does Grammarly Work?
So, you now know how Grammarly works. Furthermore, did you know that the checker can be used from other programs as well? If you want to learn more about this, let’s learn how to use Grammarly in other programs.
How to use Grammarly in Microsoft Word?
If you use Microsoft Word often, you probably already know about its built-in spell-checker. But this isn’t a very powerful feature, so if you want a more powerful editor, here’s how to use Grammarly in Word.
The installation process is very simple. So let’s get into it:
Here are the steps for installing on a Windows computer.
- Start in your Grammarly account first.
- Choose “Apps” from the list of tools on the left.
- Scroll down and select “Install” next to “Grammarly for Microsoft Office.”
- After downloading the app, you’ll need to run the file.
- You can install Grammarly for either Word or Outlook, or you can install both.
- You can use Grammarly for Word once the installation is complete. All you have to do is open Microsoft Word.
Installing the Grammarly app on a Mac is a little different from installing it on a PC. What you have to do is:
- Start up your computer and open Microsoft Word.
- On the menu bar, select the “Insert” tab.
- Next, click on “Get Add-ins or Store.” After that, you can search for Grammarly. Click the “Add” button when you find it.
- After that, a Grammarly tab will appear in Microsoft Word immediately, and you can start using it immediately.
Setting and usage
After you’ve added the Grammarly online checker to Microsoft Word and made sure it works, you can change the program to fit your writing needs.
To do this, open up a new Word document and click the “Enable Grammarly” button.
The settings sidebar can also be accessed by clicking on the Grammarly icon. There, you can set goals for your writing and choose your tone, formality, and type. You can also use the program’s built-in plagiarism checker and tell it what mistakes to look for.
How to use Grammarly with Google Docs?
Google Docs has its editor and spell-checker, just like Microsoft Word. But again, this isn’t as thorough as Grammarly’s text checker.
So let’s look at how to add Grammarly to Google Docs!
Google Docs doesn’t have an app for Grammarly like Microsoft Word does. But if you add the Grammarly extension to Google Chrome, it works automatically when using Google Docs.
Where and how to use
Once you have the Grammarly Chrome extension, you can open any Google Docs document and see the program’s icon in the bottom right corner.
This writing checker works all the time and makes suggestions as you write.
You can select your writing objectives and the appropriate grammar for British, American, Australian, and Canadian English, just as with Word.
One thing to keep in mind is that the program’s integration with Google Docs is still in its beta stage. This means that occasionally you might experience issues, such as the app freezing up while you’re using it.
Even still, it contains some excellent corrections and ideas that any writer would find helpful.
How do I use Grammarly in Chrome?
With the Grammarly for Chrome extension, you can access all of the app’s features from your browser.
This extension works as a built-in editor and proofreader for any text you write in Google Chrome. This means it can suggest edits and a better tone for your emails, social media posts, and blog posts right from your browser.
Let’s look at how to use Grammarly as your dependable online writing assistant by adding it to Chrome:
To install Grammarly to Chrome, go to the Chrome web store and click “Extensions” to click Grammarly to Chrome. After then, you can search “Grammarly” into the search box.
Once you’ve found it, you must click “Add to Chrome” and wait for the installation to finish. It’s really that easy.
Settings and usage
Once you’ve added the extension, you’ll see the program’s icon in the top right corner. Then you can click it to set it up. You’ll see some of the following options:
- Google Docs checker: If you want Grammarly to automatically proofread your document and suggest changes as you write, you can turn this on.
- Definition checks: If you turn this on, Grammarly will show you the meaning of any word you double-click on, no matter where you are.
- Automatic correction of spelling: This lets Grammarly change any misspelled words.
- Both the language and spelling you use to write can be chosen. You have the option of using British, Canadian, Australian, or American English.
Grammarly immediately begins checking whatever you write online after you set up the program. In the bottom right-hand corner, it also has an assistance icon. You can learn more about what it suggests when you click on it.
Aside from showing you how to use Grammarly, it’s important to know that it doesn’t store your passwords or other sensitive information. It only works as a grammar checker and not as a keylogger. So, you can trust the extension and not worry about how it will affect your privacy.
Apps and add-ons for Grammarly
Depending on the device and program you use, Grammarly has a type of app and extension options.
To start, Grammarly works as a browser application. Go to Grammarly.com, sign in, and start using the program immediately. You can create new documents in the browser app or upload documents from your files. It then makes suggestions for changes.
A desktop app for Windows and Mac is also available for this English grammar checker. A Grammarly app also works specifically with Microsoft Word and Outlook.
You can also get the keyboard app for your phone if you want to use Grammarly there. It’s free and checks the text you type on your phone.
Lastly, Grammarly for Chrome checks and fixes all of the text you type in the browser. This extension works when you use Google Docs, email, Facebook, etc.
Grammarly is without a doubt one of the most useful writing programs out there. It’s accurate, easy to use, and flexible. Also, it’s free, so anyone can use it. With a paid plan, people who write at work or school can use extra features like style, tone, and clarity changes.
