Morning from northeast tornado country,

 

Has anyone tried the program with MS word and used the more advanced features of the Premium version?  If so, might you share your impressions of the good and the bad?

Hello,
Unfortunately it is totally inaccessible with any screen reader.

It is completely inaccessible with any screen reader. Your best option would be to change the grammar checker in MS Word to also check for styles, not just grammar. That's the only accessible avenue for grammar checking because all other third party solutions are not screen reader friendly.

Thanks much for the info. My actual grammar is quite good. My downfall is the comma, since I write by ear, I tend to use that little mark as I can make the spoken document sound as it should.

 

I will take your advice about expanding the Word checker.

As others have said, Grammarly is inaccessible with the keyboard and with screenreaders.  For a sighted mouse user, it works great, it highlights grammatical errors in many places, including forms you are filling in on the web.  A similar service, ProWritingAid, has a screen reader accessible interface.  It's not free, but worth considering if you're after a full featured grammar checker: https://prowritingaid.com/en/Analysis/Editor?screenReaderFriendly=true

Grammarly used to work for me with firefox and NVDA (using the cursor) with most fields. Not sure about word, never tried.
