More – Checking The Tone Of Your Emails

  • July 21, 2010

ToneCheck.comYou might be the most diplomatic person around, but the fact remains that people tend to misinterpret what others say. Picking the right words to use in an email is never easy, and the chances of you coming up with something that will have a negative value if the reader wants to look for it can never be subjugated completely.

They can, however, be minimized considerably by using a tool like Tone Check.

We could say that Tone Checker does for the emotional side of any email what a spellchecker does for its grammar. That is, both highlight content that is at fault. And in the case of Tone Checker, it spotlights content that might express an emotion or a tone that is entirely removed from what you intended to convey. For example, if you have chosen a word like “annoying” or “upsetting” it will highlight it so that you can pick a better option such as “concerning”.

As a result, this plugin will let you make sure you are not adopting a hectoring or inconsiderate tone when talking to a subordinate or a superior, and that neutrality will be preserved as much as possible in all cases.

Still, just because something is incredibly taxing it doesn’t mean nobody would undertake the task at hand. That is the case of the site under review right now. is a resource which aims to ensure the Internet will be as neutral and objective a place as it can be.

As they say on the site, the idea is to “preserve a free and open Internet” so that both innovation and creativity have a space where they could develop naturally and lead to something constructive. Everybody can join in the conversation and share his/her ideas on what would make a better Internet.

The concept is an interesting one. Too idealistic? Probably. Necessary? Definitely. Especially if we want to ensure that something which is becoming as malleable as the WWW will not lose its integrity, or be distorted beyond recognition.
