Hi Linda,

Our center has had good luck with Ginger spell check software - http://www.gingersoftware.com/. There is a free version available. It works well with MS Word on Windows, Chrome and Safari on Mac, and there are iOS and Android apps available.

Thank you,

Subject: [Athen] question on grammar supports

I am working with an English Language learner who has a great deal of difficulty with writing, and in particular with English Grammar. While most Univ. level students are fine with the MS Word grammar supports, he was looking for additional support.
I'm aware of the Grammarly product, but have not tried it. A major drawback is that it is $29.95/ month, presumably in USD.
There is an educational version of the product, but it requires a site license purchase.

Has anyone tried this product- can you give me feedback on it?

Any other products, particularly those that would work with MS Word?
