Check Readability of a Document

To check statistics on writing style in terms of its readability to those of varying educational levels or ages, select the “Show readability statistics” option in the Spelling and Grammar tab (Tools Options). After running the Spelling and Grammar check, the document’s readability rating is generated based on a variety of established scales, such as Flesch Reading Ease and Flesch-Kincaid Reading Level.
