This software will work on Vista, provided you are using a 32-bit version of vista. This software will not work on 64-bit versions of Windows.
The software doesn't integrate itself into a word processor, nor does it claim to. The software is a separate tool. It requires you to cut and paste your text from your word processor of choice into the program for analysis.
I performed a series of test runs with the package. It picked up a lot more errors than Word 2007's grammar checker did. Please note, this software wont automatically correct the work for you. It will flag potential errors and advise you of them. It's then up to you to make any changes in your document.
At first I found the software's error checking messages to be intimidating. However, the more I used the program, the less intimidating it became. I recommend a good writer's dictionary so you can understand some of the grammar jargon this program's error messages display.
The more I work with RightWriter, the more I come to understand grammar. I've reached the point where I can now identify and correct problems in my work without using the software. If you need a good grammar checker I can recommend this one.
It does spell checking but that is only a secondary feature. The most important feature is how it analyzes writing and identifies grammar and style problems. It also has a page that shows several graphs rating the quality and difficulty of the writing. This page has been greatly helpful for me because I need my writing to be easy to understand. I now have a tool I can use in Rightwriter that helps me make my writing understandable even to those who do not have a doctorates degree.
It does not catch every error but then neither did Whitesmoke or any other program I demo'd.
For the money, you can't beat Rightwriter. I also recommend the Fix Your Grammar! course by the same company. It really helped me improve my writing and avoid dumb mistakes. One drawback to the course is that now I hear every grammar error on TV and I don't think I have seen a single news broadcast, reality show, scripted show, or even a movie that did not have several embarrassing grammar mistakes. They should have used the course or the Rightwriter software.
I like my Rightwriter and I will be keeping it.
I use rightwriter anytime I am checking an email that is important or when I am confused or something does not sound right and it is very helpful.
It is like having your own personal teacher. It analyzes my sentences and grammar making suggestions
on how to improve it. Buy it if your lousy at grammar. You won't be disappointed.
