Texthelp PDF Reader and Snapverter - Utilizing PDFs and Scanning Documents

With Read&Write and Google Classroom, teachers can directly assign PDF files for students to annotate. When a document is scanned, it is now in OCR format- essentially a picture. The scanned document will need to be converted into a useable, editable PDF format before it can be assigned

To do this, you will use Read and Write Snapverter. Once the document is converted into an accessible format, it can be assigned using Read and Write PDF Reader.
