She explained some unique features of Ouriginal as:

  • Can create Individual accounts for faculty and students: Students can submit the document directly to the faculty members. This way, students and faculty have a log of all the submissions.
  • It avoids false-positive reports: This system avoids false-positive reports and provides similarity percentages.
  • It supports multiple Indian Languages: It supports over 30 languages. Regional languages need to get uploaded in unique code.
  • The system is unavailable for Ghost Writers: Ouriginal is unavailable for ghostwriters. Therefore it does not give Ghostwriter the possibility to deliver the plagiarism reports from ouriginal along with the contract essays, making it harder for them to sell to students at universities that are using ouriginal.
