The new Microsoft Word will check if your texts are PC

Don't worry about Facebook censorship. Your text editor will keep you "in line".

Microsoft is preparing a new version of Word. The program is to use artificial intelligence and check spelling in terms of political correctness.

The program in the new version will include modified sensitive phrases, e.g. "we need new blood" will change to "new employees", and the term "disabled" will be replaced with the slogan "a person with disabilities".

The updated Word is also to search for "offensive" words or phrases for someone from another country or culture. It can also emphasize fragments of the text indicating gender bias.
