It's easy when editing your work to get into the flow and see the story you intend to write, rather than what's on the page. By highlighting the issues, Editomat breaks you out of your story and into what's on the page.
Editomat provides statistics like the Fliesch reading level, word usage, and graphs of emotional intensity to help you determine if the piece properly targets your audience.
Editomat can compare your work to other works. This helps you figure out if you're meeting your reader's expectations or if your story is missing its target.
You can define your own patterns for Editomat to highlight. This lets you customize Editomat to your personal needs.
