Building a Document’s Credibility Using Spelling and Grammar Tools

Two frequently used reference tools in Word are the spelling and grammar tools. The popularity of these tools is understandable—most people know that nothing detracts from a document’s credibility more than spelling and grammatical errors. To help you avoid the pitfalls of these kinds of errors, let’s look at the ins and outs of the spelling and grammar tools in Word.

Caution

Using the spelling and grammar tools to check your documents shouldn’t replace proofreading. These features are helpful, but they can’t definitively correct your text in all instances. Instead of thinking of the spelling and grammar checking tools as a teacher correcting your work, visualize an assistant who taps you on the shoulder whenever your text seems to go astray, and then offers advice on how to fix the problem. Ultimately, you’ll need to read through your document carefully to ensure its accuracy.
