Readability checker


There’s a readability checker right here on our website. It’ll tell you how easy your writing is to read and show you how it compares to some famous books and authors. There are a few different types of readability test out there—ours uses Flesch-Kincaid. (More on what that means in the checker.)

You can also turn on readability statistics in Microsoft Word.
