How to Use Antidote in Gmail

Do you write your emails online on gmail.com, mail.yahoo.com or outlook.com? These web applications are very practical, but they aren’t equipped with Antidote’s Anti-Oops! technology that allows Antidote to automatically verify messages before they are sent. This isn’t a reason to let embarrassing typos slip through the cracks! Thanks to Antidote’s integration with Chrome, Safari, Firefox and Edge, you can easily correct your emails online, without copy pasting the text.

Here’s how to do this in Gmail.

1. Run the corrector using the flask icon in the browser’s toolbar.

From the Gmail window where you are writing your message, select a passage to run through the corrector or place the cursor at the beginning of the text to correct everything. Then, click on the browser’s flask icon and select the checkmark, the symbol for the corrector. Your text will appear in a new window, either in Antidote Web’s or Antidote 11’s corrector.

You don’t see the flask on your browser? Consult our FAQ at the end of this article.

2. Revise your text in the corrector.

Handle the corrector’s detections just as you usually do. Edit your text as needed. All of Antidote’s tools are available from here. For example, you can consult the dictionaries to find the right word.

3. Close the corrector.

All the changes that you make in the corrector are automatically applied in the original text. You don’t need to copy paste the text.

You can now send your message with peace of mind since you edited it with Antidote. Nice job! 📤
