    Default Grammar Checkers

    I am wonder how many people use grammar checkers when they write? We have started relying on spell checkers as second nature so I thought about grammar checkers.

    In playing around I have looked at Grammarly but it is really designed for either Word or a plain text document. I use Libreoffice so I have just recently added Languagetools in to see how this works.

    My reaction to grammar checkers is "Nope, I am right".

    pretty useless when writing dialog.. dialog rarely follows gramatical grammatical rules... spell checkers on the other hand...

    Never understood a noun from an adjective, never ever understood grammar so a grammar checker would be completely lost on me. But that's Secondary School Education for you.

    Ha,ha. In my old age or perhaps from by brain damage when it comes to typing I am all thumbs. And for me at least it has become a serious issue.

    Oh bye the way, When I can find the time I am changing the graphic so my question to you becomes clearer.
