Correct grammar and spelling makes content more trustworthy. See how one dyslexic programmer is making the world more accessible to those who need spelling assistance at ckeditor.com/addon/nanospell.
Faversham, Kent -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/13/2015 -- Spelling mistakes have the power to ruin a website's credibility in the eyes of potential customers. Ninety-nine percent of online communication uses the written word. Charles Duncombe, an online businessman, shared with BBC News that Spelling mistakes cost millions in online sales. It's possible for customer spending to be reduced by half due to just one spelling mistake simply because consumers don't trust websites or business owners who cannot be bothered to check their content for errors. For business owners who are looking to increase revenue, publishing immaculately-written content is non-negotiable. Without it, they could see sales decline and potential customers choose a competitor.
In an effort to help tackle this issue, one dyslexic British programmer is making the world more accessible to those who have trouble with spelling through the introduction of NanoSpell, a CKEditor plugin. CKEditor is a web text editor that allows users to insert content and data into a web page much in the same way they would in a word processor. This program is used by prestigious companies like IBM, Oracle, Adobe, MailChimp, and Wix and has a total of 15,435,515 downloads by programmers who have added it to their websites and business systems. With all of the popularity CKEditor has garnered, creating a Ckeditor Spellchecker plugin to help developers check their content for spelling mistakes makes sense.
Simon WIlkins, a representative of NanoSpell, stated "We understand the importance of ensuring online content is free of grammar and spelling mistakes. Because of the rise of casual online conversation and posting taking place every day on social media, people have a tendency to underestimate the power of poor spelling to turn customers away from a website or brand and send them running to a competitor. We have one simple mission, and it is to provide excellent spell-checking solutions for web-enabled software so online business and website owners don't have to experience this."
As Wilkins further explains, "Being web developers ourselves, we've made NanoSpell free and easy to install so a person can have it up and running within a few minutes. The CKEditor spellchecker plugin developers we have on our team have provided a settings guide for the plugin and are available to answer technical questions for those who find they need additional help. International dictionaries are also available to web developers across the world who need to publish content in languages other than English."
"There's no denying that perfect spelling is as important online as it is in the real world," says Wilkins. "The good news is that a developer no longer has to have perfect spelling skills in order to publish great content. With the NanoSpell plugin, we've put in everyone's hands the ability to impress website visitors with excellent grammar and spelling so that a business can experience the growth and expansion they truly desire to see."
