Kaizena is a free tool that lets you add voice comments to Google Documents, PDFs, and Word documents. For Google Docs users Kaizena has a free Google Docs Add-on that makes it easy to add voice comments to your documents and to the documents that students share with you. That Add-on is demonstrated in my video that is embedded below.
Kaizena can also be used to add voice comments to Word documents and to PDFs. To do this you need to create a free account on the Kaizena website and use the Kaizena web app to create a “group” or list of students or other collaborators. Once you have done that you can create a conversation based around an uploaded Word document or PDF. In the following video I demonstrate how to add voice comments to a PDF.
In case you’re wondering, I use the Snowball iCE microphone (affiliate link) for recording my voice comments.

I’ve given keynotes at conferences from Australia to Alaska for groups of all sizes from 50 to 2,000+. My keynotes focus on providing teachers and school administrators with practical ways to use technology to create better learning experiences for all students. I like to shine the light on others and so I often share examples of great work done by others as well as my own. Click here to book me today.
