A PhD dissertation can have up to 80,000 words which is a lot of words for one person to write. In this process, it is only natural that one makes spelling errors.

Not only does it correct mistakes, it puts them into categories and provides feedback to improve the overall written work. There is a free and an upgradable pro feature with many useful features.
