Readability checker

Get an objective view

Readers prefer simpler writing – no matter their education level.* Our checker will score your writing based on the Flesch reading ease scale, which looks at how long your words and sentences are. (There are a few readability tests out there, but we think this one's the clearest.)

*There are plenty of studies that show this. Here’s one from Nielsen Norman Group.
