Yesterday as Hagan was working on something in a Google Doc, I showed him a new feature that I just knew he would love.
It is called Voice Typing and it is just what it says it is....You can type in documents with your voice.
the icon that asks you to Click to speak.
When you click on it and start speaking the microphone icon will turn red and the typing will begin on your Google Doc. You will be able to watch it and check for any mistakes. This is really helpful to do as you go.
You can find it here.
The part about using punctuation with voice typing was especially helpful to Hagan.
This is a powerful feature that Google has added to Google Docs. It will be helpful not only to our students but also to teachers, librarians, and professionals as we keep up with the writing that we do everyday.
