ISBA Board of Governors recently approved a new member benefit that
edits an individual’s writing to make it more clear and concise. Called
"WordRake,” it is an editing software program that can be added to
Microsoft Word and will edit 25 pages and suggest 300 improvements per
minute, according to its developers.
by lawyer and bestselling author Gary Kinder, WordRake makes suggested
edits in a written piece, each of which the user can accept or reject.
The developers claim that about 90-95 percent of the edits are accurate.
members receive a 10 percent discount from the annual subscription fee
of $99. The company also offers a free three-day trial. Presently the
software is only available for Windows-based computers.
