Automatic Text Analysis
ProWritingAid analyses your text with a variety of statistics and its own algorithm. The analyses are based on the established guidelines for writing which can be evaluated. Use adverbs sparingly, less transitions, less pronouns, glue words etc. If you’re interested in good writing, you’ll probably adhere to these rules more or less in your head. ProWritingAid makes them systematically evident.

Once those errors are out of the way Once you have eliminated them, you can go to individual reports for editing more deeply. They allow you to dig into your word choices, sentence structures, repeated words and more. To determine the areas where you must focus for the greatest outcomes in the shortest period of time, you can run a Summary Report.
