Import Exam Text from a PDF file or Webpage

Import Exam Text from a PDF file or Webpage

(1) Open the PDF file or webpage
(2) Capture the text for the exam on the clipboard
(3) Paste the text for the exam into a word processor
(4) Check the formatting of the text so, Audio Exam Creator automatically import your test questions correctly. To do this:
- have questions start with a number and a period, followed by a space
- have instructions, an introductory paragraph, or any other text proceeded by “###”

Note: Sometimes text from web pages or some word processing programs have invisible symbols that can cause a problem when importing. The solution to this problem is to paste the entire text into Notes on the iPad, then copy the entire text from the Notes window, and paste that text into the import window.

Below is a copy of the article that goes into this procedure and gives other options.

Prepare test questions in any word processing application (Formatting)

To have Audio Exam Creator make an entry for instructions, an introductory paragraph, or any other text that is not a test question proceed the text with “###”.

Example: ### (Look at your printed test for visual information, and answer your questions there.)

To have Audio Exam Creator automatically subdivide your test into test questions, start questions with a number and a period, followed by a space.

Example: 3. Which president was the first to...
