I often find myself wanting to type something with a particular accent -- be it a Southern drawl or a touch of French or Russian.

People do this all the time, of course, but they have to invent their own combinations based on phonetics, and they typically do this for a sentence or two.

This word processing tool would allow me to select text or an entire document and convert it into a range of options.
