Are you looking for a reliable passive voice checker?
That’s an excellent idea. You should always avoid using the passive voice in writing as much as you can.
But sometimes it isn’t easy to spot when you are doing a quick proofread of your text.
A much easier, and more accurate way to locate a passive sentence or passive construction is to use an online checker.
There are many free online tools you can use to help you. The bonus is that many of them will help you find other grammar errors and spelling mistakes as well.
The best tools will give you options or examples to change a phrase written in the passive voice to the active voice.
