Accept more file upload types for question prompts like PDF, .Docs, etc.

It would be fabulous if I could upload a .pdf or a .doc file as an upload on my prompt. Right now it only accepts images, audio, video, and such but it won't allow me to upload a document.

    Hi Ana, we need to keep in mind what students will be able to see across all devices (desktop and mobile devices).

    The way to handle this now would be:

    1. Copy paste text from PDF/doc into the Extempore text prompt

    2. Screenshot the image and upload to the question

    Alternatively, if it's a 1-page PDF, taking a screenshot of the entire page and uploading as an image to Extempore can also work. Students can expand images to half the screen on all devices so that all text is visible with this option.

    We will consider this for the future.
