Desktop Checker

Welcome to Acrolinx Desktop Checker!

The Desktop Checker works a little differently to other Acrolinx integrations. The Desktop Checker includes an Acrolinx text editor with an integrated Sidebar. You can use it to quickly and easily check content from many different sources. Open a file from your computer or copy and paste text into the Acrolinx editor area. It's as simple as that! Alternatively, you can build a lightweight Acrolinx solution into your content workflow using the command line options.

The Sidebar Card Guide is also worth having close to hand.
