Grammarly Lite - a Spell Checker That Works As You Type!

Home Stager with Room Service Home Staging

Grammarly Lite is a Spell Checker that can work as you type!  

Just in case you've been MIA from ActiveRain for a few days, Spell Checker is MIA from the Blog Editor.  

"What?" you say!   Oh yes, but you could give this a try.  Grammarly Lite, is a program that can be installed on your browser (Chrome, Firefox, or Safari) and it will spell check and even more while you are typing.  

I've used it for several months now, and it does work, and it is free!  (There is a Grammarly but you have to pay for it).  

As you type, it will show in red, spelling and punctuation errors.  You can make the changes by highlighting the "red" and choosing their suggestion, or you can ignore it.

Grammarly lite


New "facelifts" surgical and nonsurgical take time to get used to.  And sometimes upgrades can be good.  Afterall, we may not have Spell Checker now, but we have "Smiley Faces" !     What other professional editor offers you that?

I hate the no spell check on this now.

This at least can help a little.

I tried the link; however nothing happened. Then I realized, I have INTERNET Explorer. This makes me wonder about compatibility issues whenever there's an improvement by ActiveRain. I know the AR techs are doing all they can to make improvements. I'm not a geek, but I have to wonder if this is part of the problem. How can we all become compatible with our own individual technology? That's a huge undertaking.

I have to confess, before Spell Check, I was more proficient with spelling than I am now. I hope they give us back our 14, 16 and 18 font. These tiny letters are causing me to think I'm becoming stupid or going blind!

I think there are a number of Rainers that have issues with spelling. Using spell check is pretty easy. Thanks for the tip.

Hi Kathy, I type so poorly that a spell checker is essential for me. I have gotten better because when I comment on the iPad, there is no tool bar anyway but I also have the misspelled words show up highlighted in red. I will look into this new app and see how it works. Thanks for sharing this great app.

I downloaded the app and we'll see.  By  the way it does work.  Now how do I copy and paste?  Solve that problem and I'm good.

  Most offensive thing that AR could do...did they forget who MADE this site what it is ?  Change with no explanation and a high learning curve...not welcome or the end the "improvement" may well cost them participation.

Kathy, thank you for the spell check tip! I've been lost without my spell check. I've been writing on Word or Google Docs so that I can use the spell check. I don't feel too safe without it.

Jeffrey- I use it for other sites too.

Anna-I hope they can work out the spell checker thing.

Patricia- I’m not sure how that works.  I have to browers on my computer in case something isn’t compatible with the other.

Sharon- it reeked, didn’t it.

Patrick- the nice thing about it is that it checks your grammar as you type.

Janice- let’s see if they somehow add one.

Rob- I’m hoping they will.

George- my spelling isn’t that bad, but my typing can be.

Lou- Thank you.  Give it a try!

Kevin- I’ve liked it and have been using it for several months.

Carra- I didn’t realize it until Conrad wrote about it in a post.

Bill- this one is easy to use, give it a try.

William- that’s why I need spell checker… my typing.  This is easy to use, so hope it works for you.

James- press “ctrl” + C to copy  and “ctrl” + V to paste!

Ginny- it took me quite a while last night to figure out how to insert a picture into my comment section, which was not easy.

Conrad- will email you.

Sally & David -I just wish they had provided a detailed tutorial on what to do.

Phil- I write my posts in Google Drive but now when I put them into the AR editor, I have to reformat them. Bummer.

Hi Kathy, I need to remember this tip about this add on for my browsers. Yes, I have been MIA in the Rain most of the month. Yes, I was wandering about what happened to our Spell Checker too. But, I am glad to see it's BACK!
