Our Specialist Proofreading Services
It’s surprising how easy it can be to make errors when writing. If you write on a regular basis or on a professional level, it can be a really good idea to use the services of a professional proofreader to avoid any embarrassing mistakes through incorrect spelling, punctuation or research. We also provide specialist proofreading services for clients who use speech recognition software. Our speech recognition software proofreading services are great for increasing the future accuracy of your software through “training”. Speech recognition proofreading is also especially important for checking that all sentences make sense (particularly medical). This is especially important as speech recognition software does not make spelling errors, but can add words that are entirely out of context!
