STC Staff Pick: Ginger Software

Ginger Software is a unique spelling and grammar checking software. Unlike word processing software spell checking that checks for typos, this software will check for accurate spelling and grammar within the context of the sentence. This program can give relatively accurate spelling alternatives for words spelled phonetically creative. There are many features available, including: 

• Corrects texts based on the context of each sentence 
• Corrects texts in MS-Word, Outlook, PowerPoint, Internet Explorer, & Firefox 
• Creates lessons and quizzes based on mistakes (feature of Premium version) 
• Works like a private English Tutor 
• Gives multi-media English courses • Reads aloud texts in emails, documents, and web pages (feature of Premium version).
