Author: | Posted in General, Linux, Tutorials 4 Comments


Grammar and spelling makes the English language a stream. It’s not hard to learn everything about English even though you didn’t take that much of risk to learn this language to the core along with its grammar. Some of us have troubles with the grammar in our mother tongue. With our friends, its not an issue that how you are using the language but at the time you get into some professional work or a business the grammar and spelling are most important. Even if you have a strong knowledge in English, you will make some unpredictable mistakes sometimes.

Making tutorials, comments, advertisement or communication the grammar and spelling takes a main part. While doing such sort of things you mostly concentrate on the content and not on the grammar or a spelling, so there may have a chance of errors. The readers will subconsciously looks for the negatively upon the author who makes mistakes in grammar and spelling.

Each platform has its own inbuilt spell checker apart from that if you need a better proof reader for your content go for additional softwares. There are lots of proof reading softwares available. Some are free of cost and some may ask us to pay.

Lots of online and off line proof reading softwares are available for English in which the Ginger is the one of the simple and effective spell and grammar checking softwares available in the market.


How Ginger Works?

Ginger works on the Natural Language Processing technology. Intended to check both the spelling and the grammar. Even the spelling is correct, it will also check the similar occurrence of the sentence on the web to verify whether it makes any sense. It is helpful for those who have the English as mother tongue and those who use it as an additional language.

Ginger automatically checks the content typed on the web elements or on the text editors. It is integrated with both the desktop and the web application. If there is any mistake then it will be underlined with a thin green line. You should right click on that word to see the suggestions and from that you can select the appropriate one. It shows the error on the real time so it’s easy to make the correction soon.
