    Default Text Checker

    Hi friends,

    I hope this topic is in an appropriate place. I am on a look out for a software (either downloadable or online) which could check my sentence structure or rather my whole paragraph (which would act similarly to the spell checker in MSWord and the likes).

    Should this post is similar to the ones already posted, I am sorry for that, and I won't mind if the Webmaster merge it to the previous ones.

    Thanks in advance.

    There are various programs out there which claim to do this, but they're still fairly limited- they check for a list of rules like whether subject and verb agree in number and that sort of thing. The technology for this is still in the early stages, so such programs may help, but don't expect miracles. You could try looking at something like WhiteSmoke.
