Overview
Consistency Checker helps you to improve your documents and to make the best impression with your text. When working with multiple authors and editors, inconsistencies can creep in. If you want to get bid documents, articles, proposals or reports accepted then quality and consistency make a difference. Consistency Checker doesn't spend time on spelling or grammar. Instead, it's intended for long or formal documents where consistency is hard to maintain. It finds mistakes that other checkers can't find, such as inconsistent hyphenation (e.g. ‘part time’ and ‘part-time’) and spelling (e.g. ‘color’ and ‘colour’). It also finds numerals in the middle of sentences, and abbreviations that appear in two different forms. It's the fastest way to help ensure that reports, articles, proposals, contracts and other multi-author documents are the the best they can be.

Ironically, the performance of this tool is not very consistent. It picked up on a few consistency errors, but it failed to spot many others. I put in loads of inconsistencies in my doc and it passed with flying colours. I used spelled out numbers and digits. I used acronyms in lower case and again in upper case. I use inconsistent compounds such as basket ball and basket ball. None of these were picked up on by consistency checker. It's probably better than nothing, but you can't rely on it to spot a lot of inconsistencies. You'll still have to be vigilant and manually scan your document yourself. It's a pity, because it would be a really handy tool if it worked properly.

Works well enough. For some reason, it called out "T-The" and "T the." First example was "the" being stuttered, the second example was actually "CheapesT THEre." So it can't really read. Would love it if the addon checked for verb shifts as well.

This is the *best* add-on anyone can get for Google Docs. It checks the consistency of your spelling. Do you use "add-on" and use "addon" later in the document? Professional editors the world over use this tool, and I can tell you it works beautifully.

This program does a pretty good job with those elements it is programmed to check. I used it first on a 3,500 word short story and then an 85,000 word novel. It found nothing to report of the short story because it was clean. On the novel it found some hidden errors and questioned other usage. The results were pleasing. Utilizing the search option within the word processor, each item it identified was located. This should be a definite addition for writers serious about trying to publish the cleanest manuscript possible. It will be even better as other style elements are programmed in.

No german language support - Doesn't find anything. But the idea of such a tool is great!

Helpful, but it would be better if you could select which option was right from within the app menu, instead of having to search through the document for each instance. I work with very long documents, so it's very annoying.

The original app appears to have been replaced with an advertisement for another product. it made no suggestions; it just displayed a flashing ad as I waited 5 minutes for a response.

The original add-on is still there. It sounds like our server might have gone down briefly while you were using it. If you give it another try, it won't have that problem.

It only told me which words should be changed, it didn't give me option to change anything, or even where they were.

With the free app, the information is what it offers. Then you make the changes using find and replace yourself. We have a paid alternative for Word that shows where things are located.

Doesn't work at all. I typed up the poorest paper you could think of, and it said, "Test Passed" Uninstalling now!

Can confirm. I put in loads of inconsistencies in my doc and it passed with flying colours. I used spelled numbers and digits. I used acronyms in lower case and again in upper case. I use inconsistent compounds such as basket ball and basket ball. None of these were picked up on by consistency checker.

The add-on isn't supposed to correct spelling or grammar. It just checks consistency.
