Using the Spelling and Grammar Checker

Overview

This feature must be enabled prior to use. Contact your account manager, or accountmanagers@responsive.io, to enable it.

We provide a spelling and grammar checker for any field with the Basic or Full Rich Text toolbar (only responses in full and basic rich text fields will be checked; the tool will not examine anything else). This feature is available for Projects, Section Templates, and the Content Library; it is not available for Guests.

Once enabled:

  • You can select the variety of English you use, so the text in your documents is analyzed for any writing or grammatical issues or spelling errors within that variety. Available options include:
    • General English
    • US English
    • British English
    • Australian English
    • Canadian English
  • The spelling and grammar checker is available for your entire company. However, it can be turned on and off by users by clicking the Spellcheck and Grammar icon on the toolbar. If you disable the Spelling and Grammar Checker in the Organization Settings, you will have a spell checker but no grammar checker.

The tool automatically marks words that are not spelled correctly or are not grammatically correct. While hovering over the marked text, it displays corrected text options in a pull-down menu that can be used to replace it. Also, words can be added to the Dictionary so they are not marked in the future.

Our content tool does not store customer data, but it is processed by their servers. The servers are hosted in AWS in the US.

You want to provide a professional response to a questionnaire, and reduce the risk of content being misunderstood due to the mistakes in the text.

Select the applicable tab for your edition of Responsive.
