Unformatted text preview: Welcome to WritePoint, the automated review system that recognizes errors most commonly made by university students in academic essays. The system embeds comments into your paper and suggests possible changes in grammar and style.

You will also need to review your own citations and references since WritePoint capability in this area is limited. Thank you for using WritePoint.
