I appreciate the descriptions’ clear language and use of sample sentences…Grammarly/Edu/Students… to highlight mistakes. It’s more detailed than what you get with the built-in grammar checkers of both Google Docs and Workplace 365, though the latter’s is enhancing quickly. I also find the error count that includes at the bottom of every file to be an effective way of showing how much editing work I have left.
we’re doing a review of grammarly and specifically is it worth it to go from the free variation to the paid version so whether you are a student a worker an individual or a team has a great deal of different functions for you however like is it actually worth it to go into those features some of the things we’re gon na be talking about in today’s video are things such as up talk and hedging these are 2 things that are really crucial for me due to the fact that i tend to come off less positive with my writing and delivery which is something that i wish to deal with and can assist support that so let’s start with the free variation and then work our way up and see how it compares when you go to premium so whether you’re on chrome this is what it’ll appear like to add the chrome extension now if i was to go to safari you can see that they have an extension on safari also so let’s state that you were to get set up on chrome the manner in which it works is they’ll include an extension to your web browser and they have a demonstration document that sort of highlights a few of the functionality
of the tool so i’m going to avoid the tour today since that’s something that you can do by yourself however what i wish to do is really go through all the basic functions very rapidly and highlight those however then reveal you what it appears like when you get to premium so a few of these are pretty basic like misspellings it’s very simple one click and you can alter the spellings however result if you look at this you know that’s one that i constantly do wrong undoubtedly this is sort of uh tailored made to all the typical errors that we make as users i’m horrible with commas as well uh so it’s very easy to simply kind of overcome this so you get the basic idea in my viewpoint at this moment it’s very similar to a basic spell check so this is kind of where grammarly even on the complimentary version starts to set itself apart from standard spell checker and what i imply by that is if i was to copy this and go and begin a google doc here and i hit get in so you’ll observe that from the google spell check side of things there are no concerns with this sentence but grammarly is showing you problems so let’s say i was to copy and paste this in obviously this is the wrong form of there this is what it looks like on the google spell checker now if you desire there is a particularly for chrome which remains in beta testing as of 2021 so if i turn that on now and
