Kami: Mark up and Comment on Document

What does Kami do?


Basically, KAMI performs 5 major functions:

- Converts many file types, like Docs, Word, or image files, to PDF (See Glitches*).

- Converts PDFs to “readable” OCR format so that the PDF image is understood as letters and words for searching and copying.

- Allows PDFs scans or photos to be merged into a single PDF (See Glitches*).

- Allows students and teachers to mark up and annotate the PDF with text, highlights, shapes, colors, comments, etc.

- Integrates with Google Chrome, so it auto-saves to Drive.
