Free app checks your grammar across web and Microsoft products | Marti Trewe, WAGBeat

Trewe gives a brief description and evaluation of this new app. She writes:
Ginger, an app that is an intelligent spell checker, recognizing words in context and provides the most appropriate corrections for spelling and grammar mistakes according to the intended meaning of your sentence. Ginger can tell when a correctly spelled word is misused and replaces it with the correct word.
She notes that it works in Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, Outlook and Internet 6.0 (for PCs, so far). It also works as a Firefox and Google Chrome extension and in Gmail but not Google Docs or WordPress.

Since it's free, I might check it out. Of course, with any spelling and grammar checker, it's essential that writers review and confirm the accuracy of suggested changes in spelling, grammar, and word usage. These tools can be helpful, but they do not and cannot replace human judgment.
