Targeted towards students, Essay Typer is an automated platform that can be used to create essays about thousands of topics with a few keystrokes — quite literally as all you need to do is press random keys on the keyboard.

Essay Typer is a “combination of magic and Wikipedia”, as the creator, Bay Gross, puts it in the About section of the website. It’s also not recommended to use the text created by Essay Typer directly for any kind of submission — academic or professional — as the essays are copied from different sources on the web.

While you can’t use these essays for submissions, they can still be useful for quick research on your topic.

Although a popular tool among students, one of the main issues with Essay Typer remains that you can’t copy text from the essay or paste text of your own into the essay, because as mentioned above, the essays are plagiarized, and the copy and paste function are disabled on the website to help people fall into trouble by copying and adding text directly to their document.

However, if you need to copy the text for future reference or would like to add some of your own notes to the essay, there is work through that can help you copy and paste in Essay Typer and here we’ve explained that.
