Whatever your stance on “too PC” is, it is a good idea to think about the words we use and what effect they can have on people. And when it is easy to avoid a word that may cause harm, why not do it? That said, we’re lazy and forgetful creatures, which is a why a tool like Alex.js can help.
And lo and behold, the team listened and my ace colleagues Kiril Seksenov, John-David Dalton and Kevin Hill now made it happen: you can now download the Alex-add-in.
The add-in works in: Excel 2013 Service Pack 1 or later, Excel Online, PowerPoint 2013 Service Pack 1 or later, Project 2013 Service Pack 1 or later, Word 2013 Service Pack 1 or later and Word Online.
Spread the word and let’s get rid of inconsiderate writing one document at a time.
