What our customers say

  • I must say what a brilliant tool the MWS Reader is. As an author, I have used this to catch many of my typos or awkward sentence constructions. After you've worked on a novel for a while, you can be almost blind to your own errors and omissions. But when you hear a passage of text read out, you don't miss them at all. Missing words, wrongly spelled words, unclear writing - all so easy to identify. A truly handy tool which is now helping me get my novels to market faster. Bravo!
