Editor provides advanced writing assistance with grammar, spelling, and style suggestions across the web (1) so you can confidently write clear, concise posts and emails. 

Write like a pro with intelligent writing assistance
Nail the basics with free grammar, spelling, and punctuation proofing. Go beyond basics with advanced style-checking for issues like clarity, conciseness, formality, vocabulary, and much more with premium (requires a Microsoft 365 subscription).

Personalize it to your needs
With Editor, you can add custom words (like names you frequently use or acronyms) to create your personal dictionary; look for “Add to dictionary” when Editor makes a spelling suggestion. Your personal dictionary roams with you wherever you use Editor – across the web with browser extension and built-in to your Microsoft 365 apps.  We’ve also made it easy to skip all occurrences of a spelling correction by selecting Ignore All, or skip unwanted grammar suggestions by selecting Ignore. Editor will now automatically correct misspelled words as you type. A new green highlight will show you that a word has been autocorrected. In addition, Settings gives you a way to fine-tune your preferences for writing suggestions and personalize it even further.

Write anywhere
Get writing assistance on sites like LinkedIn, Gmail, Facebook, and other favorites with this browser extension. If you want Editor’s assistance in the Office apps where you write the most, open Word or Outlook on the web and get suggestions to improve your documents and email.

Get assistance in multiple languages

Risk impact

Microsoft Editor: Spelling & Grammar Checker requires a number of risky permissions that can potentially harm your browser and steal your data. Exercise caution when installing this add-on. Review carefully before installing. We recommend that you only install Microsoft Editor: Spelling & Grammar Checker if you trust the publisher.

Risk impact measures the level of extra permissions an extension has access to. A low risk impact extension cannot do much harms, whereas a high risk impact extension can do a lot of damage like stealing your password, bypass your security settings, and access your personal data. High risk impact extensions are not necessarily malicious. However, if they do turn malicious, they can be very harmful.

Risk likelihood

Microsoft Editor: Spelling & Grammar Checker has earned a good reputation and can be trusted.

Risk likelihood measures the probability that an Edge add-on may turn malicious. This is determined by the publisher and the Edge add-on reputation on Edge Add-on Store, the amount of time the Edge add-on has been around, and other signals about the Edge add-on. Our algorithms are not perfect, and are subject to change as we discover new ways to detect malicious extensions. We recommend that you always exercise caution when installing an Edge add-on, especially ones with higher risk impact and/or higher risk likelihood.

Da meine Rechtschreibung nicht sehr gut ist, hilft mir das Add-On sehr beim verfassen von Blog Einträgen.
