To what extent do readers feel the use of this tech, especially with so many online courses done from home, constitutes cheating?

You could be marking pieces of work that look like they have been written by someone with an impressive grasp of language, only to finally meet your student at graduation and find that they have the linguistic abilities of Donald Trump, and really good software.

Anyone can use a thesaurus, but that doesn't mean they will make an informed choice of alternate words when they do. Software is now appearing that does much more than just highlight obvious typos. The exam system is supposed to determine the abilities of a student, not the feature set of their software.

I don't. It's like trying to argue that using a calculator for math is cheating, even though all mathematicians will always have a calculator, and it's a tool to do things faster. We live in the digital age, and same as spelling has become less relevant due to the fact that 99.999% of what is written now is written on something with a spell checker, I don't see that using these tools to find mistakes in writing is a bad thing. If anything it will make many of them better, due to having their mistakes identified immediately, making them easier to catch on their own in the future.

Of course some won't learn much of anything due to such tools, and will just use them as a crutch. But education should be less about punishing the ones who don't do well, and more about lifting up those who do.
