Help with spelling, grammar and more...

Google Scribe is writing tool that helps not only with spelling but also grammar and offers suggestions "predicting" the word or phrase you wish to use next. Great tool for beginning writers and for non-native English speakers.

I used 'scribe' to write the following sentences ONLY with their suggestions.

The following content has been identified by the user as possible while still maintaining the integrity of the information. The results are presented for informational purposes only and should not be considered complete.

It really is pretty amazing, but a bit slow for someone who types quickly. It's a very useful tool. It helps keep the sentences flowing, and stimulates the thought process for the writer who is searching for the right word.

No Ads YouTube Video

ViewPure Lets you watch YouTube videos withouth comments, suggestions or ads along the side! There are still pop up adds available in the ad bar at the base of the video itself.

Great when you want to add a specific video for a class, but don't want the students 'distracted' and going off in other directions.

Simply paste the YouTube url into the space provided!
