Antidote Web Startup Guide

Startup Guide / Your Antidote Online

Your Antidote Online

Antidote Web offers Antidote’s three renowned tools: the corrector, the dictionaries and the guides. The main difference is that these tools will open in a Web browser instead of in Antidote 11’s usual windows.

As its name suggests, this startup guide is intended as a starting point to find your bearings. The next few pages will introduce you to the Antidote Web interface and the ways you can use it to correct a text.

As Antidote Web is the cloud version of the software, the vast majority of functions remain the same and you will find several links here to the Antidote 11 user guide. To find out, for example, what an orange underline means in the corrector, consult the Antidote 11 user guide.

Antidote Web’s interface adapts to the screen format of the device you are using. See the tab On a regular screen or On a small screen accordingly.
