Is this the same as Jaro distance? --Spoon! (talk) 18:54, 13 October 2020 (UTC)

The Jaro distance does not include a modifier for the strings starting with the same letters, but the Jaro-Winkler distance does. So if the words start with different letters the metric is the same and if they start with the same letter the metrics are different. --Wherrera (talk) 19:01, 13 October 2020 (UTC)
