Boost Employee Productivity: The Ultimate Writing Companion for Work
AutoCorrect is a powerful new feature in Read&Write that not only improves individual employees' writing confidence but also enhances overall business productivity. It saves time, reduces interruptions, and helps employees focus on their tasks, resulting in better output and increased efficiency.
Read&Write AutoCorrect helps you to:
Save time and reduce interruptions
AutoCorrect automatically corrects spellings as employees type, eliminating the need for manual corrections and saving valuable time.
It works seamlessly in the background, reducing interruptions from red underlines and allowing employees to focus on their work without distractions.
Enhance writing quality
By fixing the most common errors, AutoCorrect helps improve the overall quality of written communication, ensuring that employees convey their ideas clearly and professionally.
It simplifies language and helps employees use the right words to express their thoughts effectively.
Support employees with writing challenges
AutoCorrect is a valuable tool for employees who struggle with everyday literacy tasks, dyslexia, or English as a Second Language (ESL).
It provides real-time autocorrections and helps employees overcome writing challenges, allowing them to focus on the content of their ideas rather than worrying about spelling.
Learn from mistakes and improve writing skills
AutoCorrect tracks and prints the most common mistakes, providing employees with valuable feedback on their writing.
This allows employees to learn from their errors and improve their writing skills over time, leading to better performance and increased confidence.
How does Read&Write AutoCorrect work?
AutoCorrect makes intelligent autocorrections in real time while employees type. This makes it especially beneficial for fast typers and those who need additional writing support. When combined with the other tools in the Read&Write toolbar, such as grammar and sentence structure checking, employees have a comprehensive solution for error-free writing. With AutoCorrect, employees can focus on the task at hand, stay ahead of the game, and produce high-quality output that reflects positively on the business.
Who can access this feature?
Read&Write's AutoCorrect is being offered as an addition to our customers with an ‘Enterprise’ package. That means, our customer organizations that provide Read&Write for Work to all employees.
By making Read&Write available to all employees, these customers are rest assured that 100% of their neurodivergent employees, multi-lingual teams and anyone who might struggle with everyday literacy tasks have access to the tools that they need to do their job effectively. They can support their staff without asking them to self-identify - which, according to research, 76% of people with a disability or neurodiverse condition don’t feel comfortable doing
Are you ready to find out more about Read&Write AutoCorrect?
None of us know what extra load or mental stress our employees are carrying with them
Read&Write’s AutoCorrect can help in the following areas:
Lack of self-confidence, self-esteem and negative self-talk
Red underlines and errors need extra resilience and can feed into negative self-talk. By removing them, the experience of writing is more positive.
Difficulty concentrating or easily distracted
AutoCorrect reduces the distractions of errors and red underlines, so the user can focus without interruptions.
Difficulty thinking and writing clearly
AutoCorrect frees up working memory to focus on the content and direction of their work.
These can create additional spelling and typing errors and increase stress. AutoCorrect helps reduce stress and automatically corrects spelling without the red underlines.
Manual spell checking requires lots of small decisions, which AutoCorrect reduces.
Side effects of medication
Medication can make simple things (like recalling everyday spellings) difficult. AutoCorrect removes that problem, and corrects them automatically in the background.
- Does AutoCorrect work in all programs?
Yes, it works everywhere so you can use it for reports, emails, presentations and on the web. With AutoCorrect you’re not limited to one program – your spelling is automatically corrected wherever you’re typing.
- It’s intelligent. When you make a mistake, the software analyzes the sound patterns in the word to understand what you’re trying to spell, then makes an instant correction.
- It’s easy to add new corrections. AutoCorrect provides you with millions of autocorrections as soon as it’s installed. But you can also add your own – just highlight a word and press F2.
- It can help you to improve your spelling. AutoCorrect keeps track of your spelling mistakes so you can focus on them in your own time.
- How can AutoCorrect improve my spelling?
AutoCorrect keeps track of your spelling mistakes so you can work on them in your own time. To see your most common misspellings, open the AutoCorrect main window by right clicking on the globe_tiny icon in your notification area and selecting ‘Open AutoCorrect’. Then click on the ‘Count’ column header to sort by the number of times each correction has been made. You can also print a list of your most common corrections by clicking ‘Print…’.
- Will it correct my spelling to the wrong word?
AutoCorrect only makes a correction if it’s sure what you meant. If there’s any doubt then it won’t just guess, and in this case you can add an automatic correction yourself.
- How is AutoCorrect different from my word processor’s AutoCorrect feature?
Microsoft Word and other word processors can automatically correct your spelling, but we think AutoCorrect is better. Here’s why: It works everywhere. With AutoCorrect you’re not limited to one program – your spelling is automatically corrected wherever you’re typing. It’s intelligent. When you make a mistake, the software analyzes the sound patterns in the word to understand what you’re trying to spell, then makes an instant correction. It’s easy to add new corrections.

AutoCorrect keeps track of your spelling mistakes so you can focus on them in your own time.
- Does AutoCorrect replace spell-checking software?
AutoCorrect automatically corrects many of your spelling mistakes so you can focus on your work and spend less time spell-checking. But sometimes you might need to use a manual spell-checker for ambiguous words, homophones and grammar mistakes, when it’s not safe to correct these words automatically.
- Will AutoCorrect interfere with a program’s own AutoCorrect feature, or other assistive software?
No, AutoCorrect has been designed to work seamlessly with other software and has been well tested. We aren’t currently aware of any compatibility issues.
- What is the difference between using AutoCorrect and Check it?
For an even better experience and output, we recommend using both AutoCorrect and Check It, two powerful features included in the enterprise license of Read&Write for Work. Using both features together provides comprehensive error detection, increased accuracy, and saves valuable time.
- Comprehensive error detection: While AutoCorrect is great at catching and correcting basic spelling errors, Check It provides even more advanced help with grammar, syntax, punctuation, and more complex spelling errors. Using both features together ensures that you catch all types of errors in your writing, making it more accurate and polished.
- Increased accuracy: While AutoCorrect is designed to catch and correct errors in real-time, it is not always perfect. Using Check It as a backup ensures that you catch any errors that may have slipped through the cracks, resulting in more accurate writing.
- Time-saving: While both features are designed to save time, using them together can be even more efficient. AutoCorrect can catch basic errors as you type, while Check It can scan the entire document for more complex errors. This allows you to save time and catch errors in a more streamlined manner.
Using both AutoCorrect and Check It together ensures that employees can catch all types of errors in their writing, resulting in more accurate and polished work. With the added benefits of flexibility, time-saving, and increased professionalism, these features are an essential tool for anyone who wants to produce error-free writing. By combining AutoCorrect and Check It, you can take your writing to the next level and enjoy the ultimate writing experience.
