Is there a way to perform searching text in PDF for a grammar error pattern?

Question:I am in the process of proofing a 250-page document in PDF format. Just in the beginning, I have already noticed several instances where a sentence ends, but there is no space after the period and the capital letter of the next sentence. Is there a way to perform a generic search to find these missing spaces? Is there any good solution on VeryPDF?

Answer:According to your needs, I guess you can convert PDF to word then check grammar error in word document. If you do not have MS Word application installed, you can use software VeryPDF OCR to Any Converter, which allows you to extract content in PDF to text then check spelling. But this function is only limited in English. In the following part, I will show you how to check grammar error when you have MS Word application installed.
