There is a feature in Google Docs called “Voice Typing.” When you are logged in to your Google account, open a document in Google Docs. Under the "Tools" menu, scroll down to “Voice Typing.” A microphone icon will appear. Click on the microphone and start talking. The program may initially ask to access your computer’s microphone.
In a conversational tone and speed, Voice Typing was 85-90 percent accurate. It is best to speak clearly and not too fast. You will probably need to edit your final document after using Voice Typing, especially if you need to add parenthetical features or bullet points.
There are several phrases you can use to add punctuation and formatting to your document such as the following:
- Exclamation point
- Question mark
- New line
- New paragraph
Voice typing supports many languages and is fun to try.
