Checking for grammar errors is an essential step that is included in every writer’s post-writing checklist. No matter how pro a person is, the chances of making such errors remain ever-present. And since these errors are made unknowingly, there isn’t really a lot that the perpetrating writers themselves can do about it.
And that is the reason that we have grammar checkers. These tools perform the role of a human proofreader/editor and help writers easily find grammatical and spelling errors in their content.
Most of these tools go the extra mile and also provide the reasons for the errors as well as their correct solutions.
One such grammar checker that you can use in 2023 is Grammar Check. Like others of its ilk, this tool is made to check the provided content for grammar and spelling errors and then provide the correct suggestions.
If you’ve heard about this tool but aren’t really aware of the features it provides and the functions it is made to perform, don’t worry. In this review, we will be looking at all of those factors in detail.
Grammar Check– What is it?
We did make that pretty clear in the section above, but to complete this formality, let’s give it a formal introduction here again.
The name of the tool, i.e., Grammar Check, pretty much tells us what it does. It checks grammar in a given piece of content. But, while the name doesn’t include the words “spelling” or “punctuation,” it also covers those things as well. We could be a little nit-picky and say that punctuation and grammar are technically the same things, but let’s not go there right now.

If we were to discuss this ai grammar checker more at this point, it would ruin the fun of this review. So, instead of rambling on about the features and specialities of this tool in a paragraph format, let’s get started with the whole structured progression.
So, the first thing that we’re going to discuss is availability. Grammarcheck.ai is available for free for everyone i.e., it is not locked or unavailable for people in a specific region. There is also no compulsory signing up or payment that has to be processed in order to use the tool.
All you have to do is enter the domain and run the search, and you will be led to the tool page. While we’re discussing the availability, it’s worth mentioning that there are various apps available for this free grammar checker.
We’re mentioning them here, but we will elaborate on this in the section dealing with the ‘Apps’ separately.
So, while the tool itself is free to access and all, there is a limit on the input. You can only enter 2,000 words in the field in a single go. There isn’t exactly a sign or a message informing the users of that anywhere on the interface.
Nowadays, normal blog posts are usually less than 2,000 words, so this limit should be enough for most users.
But we can take comfort in the fact that while there is a limit on the number of words you can enter at a time, there is no limit on the number of times you can run the process.
This basically means that you can run the process as many times as you want without worrying about getting blocked.
That can end the problem of users who want to check long-form content. Rather than entering the content all in one go, they can break it up and then check it piece by piece.
2. Pre-Use Features
Now that we’re done with the availability, let’s move on to discussing the features. Since there are a lot of those, we will be dividing them as ‘pre-use’ and ‘post-use’. In this context, the ‘pre-use’ features refer to the options that you can use prior to starting the process.
And the ‘post-use’ features refer to the options that are made available once the process ends. We’re going to be discussing the former right now.
The first feature that you can use with Grammar Check is multiple language support. We say ‘first’ because it literally falls at the top of the page when it loads.
There are a total of five different languages that you can choose from. They include:
- English (this is the default selection)
When you choose the language, the whole webpage gets reloaded in that particular language.
B. File Uploads
The second feature that you can enjoy before starting the grammar-checking process is the file upload support. Instead of copying and pasting your content directly into the box (which can take up a lot of time), you can simply drag and drop a file into the provided space to make things quicker.
C. Word Count
Grammar Check also shows the word count of your entered content. This can be useful when you want to make sure that you’ve imported the entire content.
The word count itself is fairly accurate. However, when we entered some content of 889 words, it somehow became 959 words when the process was complete. So, while you can trust the word count when entering the content, you should be a little careful when the results are provided.
That’s it for the ‘pre-use’ features. Let’s move on to the ‘post-use’ features now.
3. Post-Use Features
Once you are done entering your content into the tool and selecting the language, etc., the next thing that you have to do is run the process by clicking on the ‘Check Grammar’ button.
After the process is complete, you will get access to different features, some of which include:
A. The Delete Option
This option will erase the output and revert the tool back to the main default stage. In other words, the output results will be cleared, and you will be able to enter new content in the tool.
B. The Download Option
The “Download” option will save the output text to your device in the standard “.doc” format. The format is somewhat outdated, considering that “.docx” is used nowadays.
Plus, another downside that you will have to deal with the output is that the formatting will all be reset.
4. Working and Accuracy
Now that we are done looking at the features of this AI grammar checker let’s take a look at how well it works. For this, we are going to be entering this blog post in the tool and look at the results:
Just by the outputs a cursory look, we could see that the tool didn’t get all the errors. It did point out a lot of them, but at the time of using, there was some glitch, due to which all the apostrophes were changed into question marks.
But, other than this temporary problem, we think that the tool worked fairly well in finding the basic errors and issues in the content.
As of yet, there is no pricing plan or premium package on the platform. This free grammar checker is in its initial phases, so let’s see what happens in the future.
Pros and Cons
Before we give this post a wrap, let’s take a brief look at its pros and cons.
|Provides fairly accurate results||Misses out on some grammar issues|
|Free to use|
|Option to upload files|
After looking at all the features discussed above, as well as the accuracy of this tool, we can conclude that Grammarcheck.ai is a good solution for users who are looking for something free and basic.
