Support » Plugin: Jetpack by WordPress.com » Spelling and grammar check no longer available

    This was working for me in Gutenberg until 2 days ago when you removed the proofreading module from Jetpack (as of version 7.3). Even the changelog page at https://wordpress.org/plugins/jetpack/#developers states (notice the typos):

    Grammar and Spelling: Remove from Jetpack. We’ve chekced the spelling alot over the years, but now time to retire.

    Where Jetpack was providing the module through After the Deadline (see https://jetpack.com/support/spelling-and-grammar/) Automattic seems to have removed After the Deadline plugin for Firefox too.

    It was a good feature and I have found no other WordPress plugin which matches its ability. Why did you do this? Are you looking to provide a better module?

    We removed the feature as it has become a bit redundant lately. Most major web browsers have some form of this already built-in, and free extensions like https://www.grammarly.com/ are making huge strides in the field.

    It felt like the right time to back out of that field and focus more on everything else we offer.

    This doesn’t work for us either – not in browser and not in PWA.
