    No, as it contradicts itself - better to learn how to use grammar correctly in the first instance, so you don't need to run the annoying checker.

    No, it's a waste of space.

    No, I don't either, not a grammar checker anyway... I always read through to see if the grammar I use is right.  It will be beneficial to the writer to learn the use of grammar correctly, as it is one of the fundamentals of writing in English.

    No. I reread my material. I think if you know how to spell and your grammar you should be able to do that; today technology makes things easier for everyone. When was the last time you used a calculator and figured things out on your own?

    You can get a grammar or stlye book on Amazon, which will make you're life easier than a grammar checker on MS Word.

    I use but I have noticed that grammar checker cannot correct passive voices; it can correct only active voices.

    I use http://proofreadbot.com when I write any article because MS word is not able to check the apostrophe error.

    While using MS Word, press F7 to quickly check spelling, grammar, etc.
    To quickly check a word in thesaurus, select the word and then press 'SHIFT key + F7'  smile
