I thought I would do a fun one. I downloaded Grammarly to help with most of my issues on here… well it’s good but so infuriating.
Every time I quote someone, it thinks I’m wrong. It doesn’t understand that I might need to misspell things or that I might want to use my own language for once.
The language I use is an altered form of binary, that being translating in English is a little rough. In binary, there are no commas, full stops or semi-colons. It allows me to take in as much information as possible, in fragmented sections. The only issues are spelling in binary is hard. Grammarly uses programming to adapt, but it can’t adapt to something that isn’t its language being used. So its a bit annoying when I want to say; Hi everyone hows are you enjoying this? It will point out that yours is wrong, but this is how I speak, so why would I write differently.
Then there is the interface, I think it hates me. I go to click the correct word and it disappears. I get it might do it every so often- that’s technology, but every time? I’m starting to feel not that wanted by a programme. Also what you see if you get anything wrong is a red dot with a number in it. It’s detracting. I know I’m dyslexic but why do you have to show how bad I am at spelling, couldn’t it show lots of fluffy clouds or animals dancing. So it is me vs. Grammarly and… I think I may lose.
