Check similarly spelled words
Checking for similarly spelled (but contextually incorrect) words
ClaimMaster can scan your document for incorrectly typed words that are spelled correctly and therefore would not be picked up by an ordinary spell checker. In particular, ClaimMaster will identify all instances of words that: (1) appear infrequently in the document and (2) are only a one letter off from a similar word appearing much more frequently. For example, if you refer to the "control module" throughout the patent application, but in one sentence you type "control nodule." The word "nodule" would not be caught by a spell checker and it could confuse the meaning of the sentence, but ClaimMaster will flag this and other out-of-ordinary spellings as possible issues.
To identify similarly spelled words in your document, click on the Individual Proofing Tools menu, then select Check Similarly Spelled Words:
Once you select the feature above, ClaimMaster will identify all instances of words that: (1) appear infrequently in the document and (2) are only a one letter off from a similar word appearing much more frequently. After a brief analysis, you will be presented with the following window, allowing you to review any words that might be potentially misspelled in the document. Click on any identified word to see the suggested change and any similarly spelled words that appear more frequently in the document.
- Click on the "Re-check document" button to rerun all of the proofreading reports on the document. This could be done, for example, after making edits to the document to correct the issues. Clicking this button will re-run the reports with the same options as originally selected.
