ProWritingAid Review

ProWritingAid leans more as a style-checker as opposed to an ordinary spell checker tool or grammar checking tool. With the ability to integrate with Google Chrome, Microsoft Word, Scrivener and Google Docs, ProWritingAid grants users information that is the purview of beta readers and editors.

ProWritingAid has both free and paid features. The free web-based version has a limit of 500 words per document. An upgrade to the premium version is required for unlimited word counts and a licensed add-on for Microsoft Word.

It tells you whether a paragraph is easy or hard to read. The tool uses the Flesch Reading Ease formula and returns a score of one to 100. A high score indicates that a written work is easy to read.

ProWritingAid categorizes this report into three categories:

  • Easy to read
  • Slightly difficult to read
  • Very difficult to read

The consistency check is the tool’s way of making sure that you use the same rules all throughout the content. This includes spelling, hyphenation, capitalization, and punctuation.

ProWritingAid is a powerful tool which can help you improve your writing. While Grammarly has a simpler approach, ProWritingAid goes in-depth in analyzing content beyond the basics. It’s not just for casual writers; it’s also for those who are not afraid to learn the complex rules of writing.
