Inspiration

We wanted to help those who wish to improve their writing skills beyond basic syntax, who may not have access to resources who can help.

What it does

It takes a user's writing, and finds different faults with it, such as use of passive voice, first/second person, ending sentences with prepositions, too.

How we built it

A web app takes in the file, which sends it over to Java to parse the document into a readable string. That then goes through the c++ portion to do the heavy grunt work, and

Challenges we ran into

The trickiest part was connecting each of the three sections (Javascript, Java, and C++). The word processing, too, had some challenges.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

We've got a good detector of what we did implement, and it is modular so that more can be added on efficiently.

What we learned

Better algorithmic use in C++, as well as server side connection details.

What's next for Word Bot 3000

Add a better UI to explain why each suggestion is important. Then, add more features that Word Bot 3000 can capture.
