OR Microsoft recently announced a new tool called Similarity checker.
The new tool will work with its editing tool Microsoft Word and is supposed to help determine if the text in a document is original or requires some reference to the source of the text.
Currently the new tool is only available to its customers Microsoft 365 EDU A3 and A5 in the preview versions of Office suite. The Similarity checker is expected to be released for everyone in July 2020.
