Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Mar 29, 2010

Being, among other things, writers and editors, we're sticklers for good grammar and proper punctuation. So when it came time to test CorrectEnglish, our expectations were high. Unfortunately, this program failed to impress, or to correct English, for that matter.

The program's user interface looks very professional and seems intuitive at a glance. The interface closely resembles typical word processing programs, so most users should find it easy to navigate. The tabs run across the top of the window gave us access the program's grammar, writing, word choice, and reference features and settings. We were able to quickly and easily jump into a new document and format the margins, the headers, and the footers using the formatting pane on the right-hand side of the window. We then moved on to the program's key features for grammar, writing, and so on. After typing a paragraph that we knew to be full of errors, we were surprised to find that CorrectEnglish didn't detect any of them. Were we doing something wrong? We highlighted the paragraph and clicked the Check button under each of the tabs, but again, nothing. CorrectEnglish's online Help feature suggested that it could be firewall or antivirus problem, but after a thorough check, we found that none of our security software was blocking the program.

CorrectEnglish has a 10-day trial period. It installs a desktop icon without permission, but it cleanly uninstalls. Because of its functionality issues, we can't recommend this program.
