Performancing Metrics Blogs Now Has New Spell Checker Tool


Automattic, the company behind WordPress, has just acquired a new grammar and spell checker tool called “After the Deadline“, last September 8, as a replacement for the old one used by blogs.

After the Deadline helps you write better and spend less time editing. It basically works like your typical grammar and spell checker tools in word processing software, like words or phrases being underlined if the program suspects an error, as well as giving out suggested corrections that the user can choose from.

“When I first tried After the Deadline I was blown away; it was so much better than other checkers I’d used,” said Matt Mullenwag, founder of Automattic.

The new After the Deadline spell checker tool is now enabled on WordPress blogs. Those who have self-hosted blogs can get the plugin here.

    After the deadline certainly caught a few errors I’ve made and I was surprised at how good it is. I think it’s better than the same function in Microsoft Word. WordPress keeps getting better.
