Free Word Cloud Generator Word clouds can be extremely useful for gaining insights into virtually any large body of text. They can be used to study such things as corporate reports, political speeches, historical documents, news reports, public opinions, tweets, and so forth. This particular word cloud generator is designed to be not only flexible and easy-to-use, but also to produce high-quality, visually appealing word cloud images. In the images created by this word cloud generator you will find that the most frequently occurring words within your text appear toward the center of the cloud, while less frequent words appear at the periphery. You will also notice that the size of each word varies in direct proportion to the frequency with which it appears in your text. This means that the most frequently occurring words are drawn using a larger font size than those words that appear less frequently.
