Proofreading Software Typo Vision

Proofreading is always challenging.  One aspect of proof reading that people struggle with is becoming DE familiarized with their own writing.  It’s hard to get enough distance to really put yourself in the reader’s shoes.  This is part of the reason why it is so good to have someone else read your work before it reaches its final audience.  Sometimes, it’s not worth it to hire a professional proofreader.  We have build a small tool that can help you proof read your own writing easily and accurately. We simply take every word in your writing and turn them into an alphabetical list. There is also a feature that allows you to view the list with many common words omitted.  The end result is that you can quickly spot errors; this works especially well for finding inconsistencies in proper nouns.

The idea started when I was working on a memo and realized that I had misspelled one of the person’s names.  This lead me to realize that it would be helpful to quickly pull all the names in the paper together and see them side by side.  To do this it would be necessary to work backwards, you need to first find the common words and then eliminate those, what is left is largely proper nouns.  The result is a nice organized list that allows users to see errors very easily.

I hope you will give it a try. It’s free and only takes a few minutes to try.  We are not going to charge for this little tool. Just trying to get it out there and let people start using it.  If you like the idea feel free to suggest similar projects because we may be building out additional tools in the near future.  Good luck and have some fun writing.
