Why Add a Grammar Checker Tool for WordPress?

Even the most experienced writers make mistakes. Proofreading your own articles often lead to making small careless errors because we often tend to rush through the pre-publish checklist.

One way to overcome this issue is to read your articles out loud. Listening to your own voice can help you find mistakes and improve the overall readability score of your articles.

To help you with the grammar and spelling, you can use a grammar checker tool. These tools can detect spelling and grammar mistakes as you type. This saves you time on proofreading while improving content across your website.

That being said, let’s take a look at the best grammar checker tools for WordPress that you can use.

1. Grammarly

Grammarly is a popular online grammar checker tool available as a browser addon for Google Chrome, Firefox, and even Microsoft Edge. It checks for grammar and spelling errors as you write your posts.

Grammarly

It will show an indicator at the bottom right corner of the writing area. Clicking on the indicator will show you the number of errors. Spelling, grammar, and contextual errors will be highlighted with an underline as you write.

One downside of Grammarly is that you will have to switch to the text editor for proofreading.

2. Ginger

Ginger is another handy spelling and grammar checker tool to improve your writing skills and boost productivity. It is available as a browser addon and offers a nice user experience.

Ginger

It displays a tiny icon at the bottom right corner of writing areas including WordPress post editor, Gmail, Facebook, and more. It checks for mistakes as you type and highlight errors with context.

There are a few drawbacks of using Ginger. You will need to switch to the text editor in WordPress. For better proofreading, you will need to click on the icon to launch the Ginger editor.

3. After The Deadline

After The Deadline is available as a Google Chrome extension. It comes with a built-in spell checker tool with optional grammar and readability check.

Once you have installed the addon in your browser, you will need to click on it and select options. This will open the addon’s settings page where you can check the options that you want the addon to look out for.

After the deadline

You can run the tool while writing your blog posts by clicking on the spellcheck icon at the bottom right corner of the editor.

4. Hemingway

Hemingway is available as a web-based text editor, so it doesn’t work directly inside your WordPress post editor. However you can use their free web based editor to check your articles for readability, grammar, and spelling errors.

Hemingway

Think of Hemingway as not just a grammar checker but a style checker. It is designed to improve readability by showing you a readability score of your content and suggesting improvements. The web app has a clean and distraction free layout which can help you assess your content quickly before hitting the publish button in WordPress.

Hemingway is also available as a paid desktop app for both Windows and Mac which allows you to post directly to WordPress.

5. LanguageTool

LanguageTool is available as a free addon for Chrome, FireFox, Google Docs, and LibreOffice. It is also available as a web based editor and a complete desktop app.

LanguageTool

The good thing about LanguageTool is that it works with English, German, Polish, Russian, and over 20 other languages. This makes it a particularly useful tool for multilingual websites and multilingual authors.

The downside is that the free version is only limited to 20,000 characters per check, so you will need to upgrade to paid plans for more features.

6. Jetpack

Jetpack is a WordPress plugin suite that comes with a lot of useful modules. One of its core features is to add proofreading to the WordPress post editor.

JetPack

For extended grammar check, you need to visit the JetPack » Settings page. Under the writing tab, you will see the spelling, style, and grammar section. From here you can enable different proofreading options including style rules.

The downside of using JetPack is that it requires a WordPress.com account, and you will also get tons of features that you may not need.

  1. I have utilized Grammarly “Premium” and as for me, it is currently one of the best grammar checker tools.

  2. Hemingway doesn’t check grammar, just style. Two other major ones you seem to have missed are WhiteSmoke and ProWritingAid. AfterTheDeadline is no longer being developed so is pretty old.

  3. Best and essential list of grammar checker tools I use Grammarly and its the best tools thanks for the sharing this list.

  4. Syed;
    You always have interesting articles. This article was also quite informative. Yet, I am still confused as to which one you would consider to be the best of the best. It seems that no matter which one I would chose I would still have to do something extra to review my writing. I thought I would only have to install the program and start writing while everything I would write would be instantly put into the proper context. Is that the case? Thanks again for all your knowledge you pass on. Dane

  5. I have been using Grammarly for quite some time and I do not think it is very good. It works but it does not find all of the misspelled words on my blogs. I mostly use the text editor and do my own coding. Often I have to check Google to see if I have spelled a word correctly. Sometimes it picks up on a “misspelling” that is not spelled wrong. If I switch to visual editor it will pick up on a few that it didn’t find in the text editor.

    I was hoping to find something better. If it is the “best” then I guess I’ll have to keep looking for something better to be created. LOL.

  6. I have Grammarly on my machine. Does it only work if I am on a paid site? I haven’t noticed it working when I post.
