Ignore Lists of words and phrases

Note: Ignore Lists are not available on our FREE usage plans.

The readability and grade level scores produced by VisibleThread Readability make it very easy to measure how clear your content is. However there are times when you must use complex words or phrases that will negatively impact these scores. For example you may be working with content related to medical professionals and have several references to ‘anesthesiology’ in your text. Repeated use of this multi syllabic word will have a negative effect on your Readability Scores.

You can now exclude these words from your readability and grade level calculation by adding them to an ‘ignore list’.

To do so, go to the settings screen and click on ‘Ignore list’. From here you can add or remove terms from your ignore list. You can also export it to csv, or import from csv.
