For students with visual impairments, the ability to convert a print document into an editable digital document is powerful! Once scanned, the student can use his/her preferred color scheme, font size, or screen reader to access the document. The scanned document is 'editable' meaning the student can then add his/her answers to the document.
The three popular educational add-ons pictured in the screenshot are: EasyBib (bibliographies), g(math), and Easy Accents.
