Hello, Nick:

Thanks for your post on this tool. I wanted to add onto this and point out an often overlooked feature of Google Drive (especially in the new drive).

Drive allows you to convert PDF files into an editable Google Document if you have your settings setup properly. Just go under the Settings gear, and choose "Convert uploaded files to Google docs editor format".

With this option set, when you upload your PDF, you'll get a Google Doc format of your file. What I really like about this is your Google version has your original PDF version embedded within it, so you can refer back to how the original looked – in case there are any formatting changes required.

As a technology teacher, I've used this with great success for students who need text-to-speech (TTS) accommodations. When the text file being used in class is in PDF, TTS tools don't usually do the speech translation. I just upload the PDF to my Google drive, get the converted Google Doc, delete the PDF-ized pages from the document, then download the file to a Mac (for example) as a Word doc that can easily be read to the student.

It is quite a useful, but hidden, tool within Google!

Thanks again for all your ed-tech picks!
