Kincaid, J. Peter; And Others
The computer readability editing system described in this report was developed to serve as an author's aid in improving the ease of comprehending Navy technical manuals and training materials. The system has features to (1) flag uncommon and misspelled words and long sentences, (2) suggest simple replacements for difficult words and phrases, and (3) calculate the readability grade level. Each feature was tested to verify that it provides useful feedback to editors and authors. Written in Wang BASIC-2, the program can be run on computer equipment costing about $25,000.
