Table of Contents

Automatically creates table of contents in the sidebar that can be clicked through, for easy document navigation.

Clicking on a table of contents heading in the sidebar will move your cursor to that section of the document. After selecting a format in the list, clicking on the refresh button will number automatically your document's headings.

EasyBib Bibliography Creator

“The Bibliography Creator by EasyBib allows you to easily create a bibliography for your research paper. Automatically cite books, journal articles, and websites just by entering in the titles or URLs. Format citations in MLA, APA, and Chicago style. When you’re finished creating your bibliography, click Generate Bibliography and we’ll alphabetize your citations and add them to the end of your paper.”

Speech Recognition

The Speech Recognition add-on will allow you to use speech recognition to write your Google Docs documents. Express yourself as you've never done. Be free from the keyboard and faster than ever. This add-on uses the Google Web Speech Api giving a high level of assertiveness. And now with PUNCTUATION MARKS.

NOTE: ONLY WORKS ON CHROME BROWSER.

Thesaurus by Apps4Gapps

“Thesaurus for Google Documents revolutionizes your experience by helping you explore synonyms, antonyms and more.” Great for both students and teachers looking to expand the vocabulary used in their Docs and want to quickly reference the Thesaurus.

Google Translate

This add-on simply sets the Google Translate website tool inside a panel in Google Docs. Technically speaking, it’s not a big deal -- you can keep translate.google.com open in another Chrome tab. If you happen to be working on a document that requires lots of language translating, though, it could be handy to have this tool more readily accessible on the same page as the document.

HelloFax

You can send an opened document directly to a fax number. Just enter the number into the HelloFax tool panel, include an optional cover page (where you fill in the “To,” “From” and “Message” boxes), and click the “Send” button. HelloFax is a paid service, but they let you fax 5 pages for free. After that, it costs 99 cents for the next 10 pages, but the price then falls to 20 cents beyond this number of pages. Or, you can sign up for a monthly subscription, starting at $9.99. For how little you have to send faxes, you probably wouldn't need to pay!
