No-Registration Web Tools

Nathan Hall has an interesting site that includes an extensive list of web tools that do not require registration to use. Each of the following headings includes at least one tool: QR Codes; Survey and Polls; Online Whiteboards/Corkboards; PDF Tools; Charts/Graphs; Word Clouds; Maps; Schedule; Reference (dictionary/thesaurus/concordance/corpus/citation); Calculators/Convertors; Documents (webpages/text/paste/view); Annotation; Stories (create/read); Photos and Drawing (find/edit/share); URL Shortener; History; Audio; Screencapture (image/video); Checklists; Phonetics; CMS; Diagraming/Mind Mapping; Timeline; Chat/Conferencing; Timers/Clocks; Writing; HTML; Typing; Teleprompters; OCR; File; Sharing; Forum creation; Games (create and play); Invoice creation; Testing; Video (view/edit/create); Comic Creation.

A recent blog post was “Convert scanned words into editable text using Google Drive” – a feature I was not aware was available.

A similar sort of list is on L. Houle’s Wiki.

About Sigurd

Moved to rural Vermont in 1998, recently semi-retired. Intellect-oriented person (I spend a lot of time in my mind, have worked to broaden, regularly, the boundaries of what I pay attention to). One of my current interests is Goethe's approach to understanding the structures of the world (Science) and how it is different from Newton's approach. Goethe tried to stay open to what more the world might tell him of its nature, whereas Newton conceived frameworks that them became a window through which nature is viewed and understood.
