Microsoft Word is getting Bing – powered plagiarism checking tool bundled with the AI-powered Microsoft editor. Microsoft announces the plagiarism (similarity) checker tool will be available with the Microsoft word, the company’s word processor. This new Microsoft announced similarity feature is already tested with Microsoft 365 EDU A3 and A5 customers running Office preview builds. Similarity checker tool supposed to help determine if the text in a document is original or requires attribution. It will however be available to all Microsoft word users most probably in the month of July.
On Monday, Microsoft Education principal product manager Mike Tolfsen said, “Powered by Bing Search, the Similarity checker can identify and help writers with originality in their writing and learn more about appropriate attribution through tools that facilitate the easy insertion of relevant citations,”.
He also said, “This can aid writers in focusing less on the mechanics of writing, and more on the content”.
Microsoft is planning to roll out the new feature and make it generally available to all Microsoft 365 education customers starting July 2020 and Consumer and Enterprise customers will get in later this year, with support for English (Other languages will be included later this year).
Once this plagiarism checking tool is available to all Microsoft word customers, then this tool will allow them to always know when a citation is needed and when the tool identifies similarities with online sources. Texts block longer than 40 words and find exactly the same match on online sources, then it will be formatted as block-quotes that need a user introduction and commentary. In the new plagiarism checking tool, users can choose their preferred citation style between MLA, APA, or any other will automatically add the citation right after the text passage. While the text is automatically surrounded by quotation marks so users can directly choose them.
Microsoft’s over-halved editor feature is an effort aimed against the likes of Grammar and others, all of which have gained traction lately, especially thanks to the increased adoption of Microsoft Office in the first place. Editor is supposed to provide everyone with the necessary tools, so users can stick to the Microsoft platforms.
