Catch More Mistakes when Proof Reading

Instead of reading material silently when proof reading, whether it's your material or something your staff wrote, try reading it out loud.

You will catch more mistakes when you read it out loud - mistakes that may not show up when you read it silently, since often your brain will read things the way you wrote them or expect them to be, skimming over simple errors in spelling and even grammar.

If you're afraid you'll disrupt others or get dirty looks from colleagues, find a private place to do it, like an empty conference room. Try reading it at home if it's not possible to get private space at work.

It will be worth it.
