If your content is not user-friendly, it’s going to have a tough time finding…acceptance among your audience.

People like to read stuff that they can actually understand. No one likes to go through something utterly convoluted, with its intricacy bordering on incomprehensibility, akin to the gibberish of a gibbering person.

Yes…exactly like that.

That is why, in this post, we are going to be looking at five online tools that you can use while writing content to make sure that your write-up is readable and easy to understand for your audience.

Let’s jump in.

5 Tools for Creating User-Friendly Content

We will look at the tools one by one, and we will also discuss their pros and cons to help you get a good idea about them.

Hemingway Editor

Hemingway is a great tool for creating user-friendly content because it can directly help you evaluate the readability of your write-up.

When you write your content and then put it in the Hemingway Editor, it finds and highlights readability issues in it.

Here, takes a look at this screenshot:

Now, the tool basically highlights the problematic parts in the content, and then provides a sort legend at the side that explain what each of the color mean. In this screenshot, you can see how it has highlighted the adverbs in blue, and then described the ideal number of the same in the side panel.

After highlighting the various issues in the content, Hemingway also gives your content a readability score. This can range from a Grade 1 to ‘Post-Graduate’.

These grades can be really useful if you want to keep a standard for yourself. In other words, you could set a goal of always writing content with a grade 6 or something. That way, your write-ups will be consistent in their readability.

Pros

  • It’s free to use (to download the app, you will need to cough up twenty bucks)
  • No sign up needed
  • Real-time working
  • Efficient grading system
  • Formatting features available in the editor

Cons

  • No option for uploading or downloading files

Yoast Content Analyzer

The Yoast Real-Time Content Analyzer does more or less the same job as Hemingway. However, it provides some other useful readability metrics and it also gives some useful data about the SEO-friendliness of the entered content.

For example, apart from telling you things like the number of transition words and passive voice usage, this tool will also let you know if there is a focus keyword selected for the content or not. Similarly, it will tell you about the internal links, outbound links and the images as well.

In other words, while Hemingway can be used just for checking the readability of the content, this tool by Yoast can help you improve the SEO-friendliness of the content as well.

Although the main functioning of this tool is the content analysis, another excellent feature that you can get to enjoy when using it is the number of formatting and styling options in the editor. When you type your content in the box, you will be able to choose the heading styles, make the text bold or italic, and even add lists.

Pros

  • Free to use
  • No sign up needed
  • Provides useful content readability metrics
  • Provides useful SEO-friendliness metrics
  • Comes with various formatting options

Cons

  • No options for file uploading

Paraphraser

Paraphrasers play quite a major role when it comes to creating user-friendly content. With paraphrasers, you can essentially:

  • remove plagiarism from your content;
  • make difficult content more readable.

Although the first thing is done by pretty much every paraphraser, you have to choose a proper AI-driven tool if you want to get the second advantage as well.

Paraphraser.io is one such AI-driven paraphrasing tool that you can use for both these purposes. You can use it to remove plagiarism from your write-up and you can also use it make your content more readable.

There are four different modes offered by this paraphrasing tool. They are:

  • Fluency
  • Standard
  • Creative
  • Smarter

Of these four modes, the first two can be used for free whereas the other two are only for paid users.

From the free modes, Fluency works smart enough, and you can use it for your needs. The Standard mode only utilizes the synonym-changing technique, which can sometimes result in some contextual mistakes.

Although the Fluency mode works smartly enough, the Creative and Smarter modes are exceptionally outstanding. If you have a recurring need for paraphrasers and if you can easily afford it, we really suggest buying the premium version.

Pros

  • Free to start
  • Premium modes have excellent and intelligent working
  • Four different modes available
  • Multiple languages supported
  • File uploads and downloads supported

Cons

  • Annoying ads around the interface. Even the premium version does not fully remove the ads

Plagiarism Checker

Plagiarism is anathema to content user-friendliness. If your content is plagiarized, your audience will not like to read it at all…should they come to know about it.

In order to avoid that, as well as the penalties given by the search engine, it is necessary to use a plagiarism checker to check for any duplication in your content before finalizing it.

Prepostseo is a great tool that you can use for this purpose. You can start using this tool for free, and there is also a premium version that you can purchase.

Free users can enter up to 1,000 words at a time whereas paid users can take it up to 25,000 words in one go.

The results provided by this tool are accurate. It also gives you an option to download the report. This can be useful if you ever need to show a…proof of uniqueness.

Pros

  • Free to start
  • 1,000-word limit for free users
  • Report downloading supported
  • File uploads and downloads supported

Cons

Linguix

Linguix is also a grammar checker tool that you can use for making your content readable and user-friendly. However, it has a different working than most tools.

In order to use this tool, you first have to enter the content in the provided space and then select it with your mouse cursor. When you select the text, an icon will pop up.

You can click on this icon to get the different rewritten versions of the text.

The good thing about using Linguix is that you don’t have to worry about choosing between different modes and whatnot. You just get a number of different suggestions that you can choose from as per your preference and requirement.

  • Free to use
  • No downloads needed
  • Multiple rewrites for each sentence

Cons

  • Limited access for unregistered users
