Google Doc's voice typing

Post by lightfootfan on Fri Nov 03, 2017 9:27 am

Google has a 'voice typing' option in the tools on their Docs app. One has to be a Google member, have the latest version of Chrome, and have a working microphone, but I tried it, and, aside from a few errors in understanding me, it works pretty nicely:

Interesting but I am unable to log into my google account. It is getting as bad as yahoo for me. I have not looked at an email in months now.

What seems to be the problem, Glad? Have you forgotten your password?

I believe I would rather just click on a keyboard to get google.

Keyboard may be easier, but voice typing is cooler.

Keyboard is more to my liking, I think, but I haven't tried voice typing.

You have to have an updated version of Chrome, and a microphone.

You can also go to Google search, and click the microphone in the search bar.

There has to be a microphone because I do video calls with people.

Probably a built-in microphone. They're very small.
