Tech Tips

For Chrome browsers only. For a quick and easy way to put words on a page, you can type with your voice in a document with Google Docs. Anything you say will turn into text, so you can produce a proposal or term paper in no time! To speak in a document:
  1. Make sure that you have a working microphone built in to your device or connected externally
  2. In your Chrome browser, do one of the following options: 
  3. Create a new document or Open an existing document 
  4. Place your cursor where you want the text
  5. Click Tools > Voice typing
  6. Click the microphone button and speak your text. Speak clearly and at a normal volume and pace, noting any punctuation and spacing such as "comma" or "new paragraph." You can even say words for images such as "smiley face." 
  7. When you're finished, click the microphone button again.
