Use Grammarly in Word and Outlook

Many of you are reluctant to use any other grammar checker with MS Word. The reason is that you may think that Microsoft Word is well enough to detect all sorts of grammatical and spelling related flaws.


But in reality, it’s over expectation to get the top-notch grammatical correction service from Microsoft. Yes, you read it right. MS Office can’t detect many types of flaws in your writing. As a result, it’s likely to see several mistakes in a piece of writing even though it’s been checked with Microsoft Word.


Another reluctance of not using any other tool for checking grammar is that it’s a bit inconvenient to take your writing to another tool and then correct it further. After the correction, you’ll again need to correct the main document according to the corrected one.


To avoid all this reluctance, you can use Grammarly with your MS Office. So cheer up now.
