Error: Text Checking Is Temporarily Unavailable

If you see the error "Text Checking Is Temporarily Unavailable" when checking a document, please follow the instructions below:

  1. Make sure that you successfully pass the WebSockets tests here. If any section of your test results says Failed, take a look at this article.
