Add-ons are features in Google Docs that can help you perform task in the document on which you are working. They will not carryover into a web program like extensions, but can support the reading and writing process.

So now that you have a few more tools for your digital tool box, try them out and let me know what you think. Up next, more apps and extensions as educational and/or assistive technology.
