Snapverter™ quickly transforms classroom papers, images, and Bookshare eBooks into accessible, Google Drive-friendly files. Make every single word in your classroom truly accessible for every student.

Snapverter is an add-on for Read&Write for Google that converts printed documents and inaccessible digital files into readable PDF files for easy sharing and reading aloud in Google Drive.

Snapverter uses smart OCR technology to recognize text from worksheets, handouts, book pages, and other printed materials. It can also convert Bookshare® digital publications in DAISY format to accessible EPUB files, which can then be read aloud with Read&Write for Google.

Snapverter can also handle documents with embedded photos, charts and diagrams that are integrated seamlessly in the converted PDF. Simply snap a picture of any document using your smartphone or select any inaccessible digital file, and save to Snapverter’s folder in your Google Drive. Converted files can then be easily shared with students and other teachers on any device – PCs, Macs, Chromebook, tablets, or smartphones.

Try Snapverter today for free! Users have 10 scans for initial free trial. After that, the number of scans drops to 1 per week.

Snapverter provides OCR support to make documents accessible. You can take a picture of a document, upload it to Snapverter and it will convert to an accessible PDF. It also converts DIASY files to epub, making it easier to use Bookshare files. This app is essential to provide accessibility for those schools using Chromebooks.
