Tech Tool Spotlight!Spotlight cliparts

Welcome to a new feature to our ILOTA website!  Each month we will be reviewing a different tech tool for you to explore and use in your practice.  The tool chosen for the month is Kami and it is available through the Chrome Web Store  

This Google Chrome Extension is a powerful option and used widely for a variety of purposes.  This tool can be used to take a picture of a worksheet, so that the keyboard can be utilized to compensate for challenges with motor skills.  It can also be a valuable tool to offer reading support for tired eye or reading difficulties.

Features include the ability to:

  • Open, View, Annotate, and Collaborate on Google Docs, PDF’s, or other documents on your computer.

  • Multiple versions of Kami are available including a free version for users who occasionally need to access a PDF file.  The free version is limited to 15 pages.

  • Left toolbar (selecting the “>>” icon) will provide description of features.

  • Users can select, highlight, strikethrough, and underline text.  

  • Additional options include the ability to add a text box and comments, as well as draw, add shapes, erase, insert images, add a signature, and listen to the text within the document through text-to-speech feedback. 

Please note that features are dependent upon the specific version. Please refer to Kami’s account plans at the following URL: additional subscription information.
