Google Doc’s New Voice Typing Feature

Google introduced a new feature for Google Doc’s that works exclusively in their Chrome browser and Chromebooks in the last month. The new voice typing feature is built directly into Google Docs on the Chrome browser now and puts the Chromebooks closer to what other devices like iPads and iPhones have had for the last few years with Siri voice dictation.

Using the new feature is very simple. If you have the most recent update to the Chrome browser or
Google Chromebook you’ll be able to find the voice typing under the tool menu in Google Docs. Once activated, you just need to click on the microphone icon and you can start voice dictation right away. If you are new to using voice to text there are some universal commands that most programs use. For example when wanting to add punctuation, you would just say the name of the punctuation or the line break. I did find that when I used the word “period” it would add a period, but would sometimes change if it detected the context being a word and not punctuation mark.
