AP Lingofy proofs the content you create in Web browsers, helping find errors in spelling, usage and AP style as you post to WordPress, Blogger, Twitter, Tumblr, Facebook and more.
AP Lingofy is a Web browser plug-in powered by Tansa Systems's advanced proofing engine, providing automated style checking directly in Mozilla Firefox, Microsoft's Internet Explorer and Google Chrome.
Unlike traditional spell-checkers, Lingofy is a server-based solution that parses text in phrases, applying advanced algorithms which allows greater precision in flagging errors in spelling, AP style and usage.
The Lingofy dictionaries are highly customizable and provide a personal dictionary in which you can enter and maintain your own terms, such as:
- Proper Names -- people, places and products
- Common typos
- Pet peeves of you and your editors
- Warning words -- vulgarities, clichés and legalities
Lingofy is accessed as a dropdown menu in your Web browser or by contextual menu. It can check Web forms, TinyMCE editors and many other Web-based text editors. Lingofy checks your text against the latest entries in the AP Stylebook, Webster's New World College Dictionary, Fourth Edition and your personal dictionary simultaneously. Lingofy's small widget can sit on the desktop, for quick and easy access to your local Web-based style guide.
The custom dictionaries improve over time. The longer you use Lingofy, the more the system can learn about your unique writing style and the better the software gets at spotting errors and suggesting corrections.
Subscriptions start at $79.99 for one year for use on Firefox, Explorer and Chrome, or $69.99 for members of the AP not-for-profit news cooperative.
The beta is open to subscribers to AP Stylebook products using the Windows operating system. The beta program will expand to subscribers to AP Stylebook products using Mac OS X by the end of November. After thoroughly testing and verifying the system’s functionality and performance among the beta users, we will open up sales on both Windows and Mac to everyone.
