2.) How to Use the ‘Proofread Writing’ Function

How to Use the

Proofread Writing Function

on Your WordPress.com Blog

1.) Log in.

2.) Go to your ‘dashboard’.

3.) Choose an old post to update (Edit), OR choose a ‘New Post’ (or ‘Add New’) to write a new post.

4.) Just above the ‘text box’ look for the small icon (or small square picture) of the green ‘check mark’ with ‘ABC’ written above it. It is third from the right, in the middle. Click on it.

5.) Carefully read all the suggestions it makes. It will make suggestions for you by underlining words the computer thinks might be wrong. To check its suggestions for correct spelling, ‘hover’ your mouse pointer (or arrow) icon over the underlined word, and then use the ‘right click’ button (or, click the button on the front right of your mouse, if you use a Microsoft-type computer). Some words will be underlined in red. Some might be underlined in green.

6.) After you right-click on the underlined word, choose the best suggestion highlighted, and select or click on that. The computer should change the word automatically for you.

7.) Read the sentence again just to double check.

That’s it for now. Finished? Well done!
