5 Fab Features of Google Docs

  1. Voice Typing- Docs now includes the ability to speak to your computer and your words will appear in your Doc. It works well, uses context-sensitive clues to choose the correct form of words that sound the same, it allows multiple languages and more!

  2. Insert Special Characters- Forget the Alt + ASCII code for your needed special characters. Docs now allow you to find and insert hundreds of special characters by simply drawing an example with your mouse or using the text searching tools.

  3. Turn your static PDFs into Docs that you can edit and type in via Google Drive's OCR which is ran on the file and it is converted to a Google Doc.

  4. Revision History- View and/or restore your document to any point in its “life”. No more accidental deletions. You can also see who made the changes and when. With an Add-on you can even see what percentage each student participated in a writing project.

  5. Research Tool- Imagine using Google Search right in your document. Find information, definitions, images and more. Has built-in citation and linking capability!
