Miscellaneous Tools

Autodesk Homestyler

Redecorating or remodeling your home is a lot of work.  It helps if you start with a good plan, but it can be hard to visualize everything in different places.  This tool lets you build a 3-D model of your home.  You can then fill it with furniture and decorations.  You can move walls around.  When you’re done, fly through the model to see how you like it.

Bing Translator

If you run into a foreign-language site on the web, grap the URL and head here.  Bing can translate between dozens of languages.

Free OCR

This is a free online Optical Character Recognition tool.  Don’t have a scanner?  Take a photo of a document and upload it to the site.  It will extract the text.  You can paste it into a new file for editing.

Internet Archive

Internet Archive is a non-profit library of millions of free books, movies, software, music, websites, and more.

Paper Rater

You want your writing to look its best.  It could be a college research paper or a business report.  It always helps to have someone else look it over, but you don’t always have someone to be your proofer.  That’s where Paper Rater comes in.  It will check your grammar and style.  It also tests for signs of plagiarism.
