here. Since it was free, I downloaded it. With PaperPort you can create a document by typing, writing, and using voice-to-text recording. I like the flexibility. It's like dragon dictation and an interactive notebook combined in one app. On the second try, the voice-to-text recording worked perfectly for me. The thing that is most exciting, though, is the ability to share in so many different ways. I can share a document as a PDF file, through email, Dropbox, or Google Docs. I can also open it in Pages. What this means is that a child can create a document, using their voice or a combination of voice and typing/writing, and then share it very easily with their teacher. For students who struggle with handwriting or organizing their thoughts on paper, this is a great step for them. I am excited to try it with a student soon.
