Snapverter and OrbitNote

Using OrbitNote, you can make any inaccessible PDF readable. OCR Scanning for image-only PDFs is now available at the click of a button.

Using Snapverter? Here’s an update.

As a Snapverter customer, you might have noticed that you now have access to our newest product, OrbitNote. OrbitNote allows you to transform and interact with documents in a completely different way.

It helps you to create readable and editable PDF documents where the whole class can collaborate and interact together.

Snapverter is only available to our current customer base. However, the OCR Scanning feature in OrbitNote lets you make use of existing classroom papers, image-only PDFs, and other inaccessible resources by converting them to readable text that can be shared with students to edit as they need to.

At the touch of a button you can convert inaccessible PDFs right in the existing PDF, ready for your students to engage with.

What is happening to Snapverter?

As a valued Snapverter customer, you still have access to the product.

We’re on a journey to add all the great features in Snapverter into our new PDF reader and editing product, OrbitNote. Until then you’ll be able to use Snapverter’s features for a little longer.

For the easiest OCR workflow try OrbitNote. We plan to adopt all of Snapverter’s features into OrbitNote but it’s not happening just yet. And when it comes the time, we’ll be in touch to let you know.
