Speechify is absolutely brilliant. Growing up with dyslexia this would have made a big difference. I’m so glad to have it today.

Writing Prompt Generator reviews

This is really nice for me to create short stories or comics, and they don't force you to go create an account, which is nice, because I don't want to get spammed with random emails. Good job, and thank you for the story prompt generator, Story Shack. ^^

Lingofy reviews

Works about 50% of the time, with constant stalling. Furthermore, if you use Dropbox ... expect the Dropbox website to stop working as soon as you install Lingofy. Abysmal customer service that takes weeks to get back to you. Would not recommend ... but there's no other option out there for AP Style users who want a one-click checker for WordPress.

It catches very few things in the AP style guide. The webinar on the AP website repeatedly stressed that Lingofy is better than other such tools because it can understand the full context of your writing and figure out where the errors are. The reality is that it can't even see basic diction errors (that are cataloged in the AP guide) such as further vs. farther, lay vs. lie, or hanger vs. hangar. If you give it a combined error such as "US navy", it fails to recognize that "US" should be "U.S." (in article text) and therefore fails to recognize that "navy" should be capitalized. This is the problem with just about every initialization that I tested (it got NATO correct, but not much else); if you don't happen to enter the one incorrect form that Lingofy is expecting, then it just passes your mistake. Put it all together and you really can't have any confidence that this tool has detected errors that you overlooked. In my testing, it was incapable of spotting more than 10% of the style rules in the AP guide. If these expectations had been fairly managed, I would rate the app higher, but they try to convince you that this thing really can evaluate your text and it really cannot. Also, if this app were not already five (I think) years old, I could see cutting it some slack. But at this point, promises of future improvements should probably be dismissed as unlikely to occur. Most of my testing was conducted using the Google Docs extension, but I also ran some stuff through the Chrome extension in the form of Facebook posts (I chose that after realizing that the Chrome extension could not scan a Salesforce Knowledge article, even in editor mode). In the end, I give it two stars because the customization functionality works reasonably well and nothing else I've seen offers a capability like that. It would be a promising thing except that again, I suspect nothing new is coming down the road on this. It has been released for five years and appears unchanged in that time.

Missed every typo on the page. Only has three dictionaries (and only one English dictionary, US). Doesn't actually do anything that I can see.
