How To Use Voice Typing On Google Docs

How To Use Voice Typing On Google Docs

Google announced it has added free speech-to-text capabilities to Google Docs (Google calls it Voice Typing). This would have been huge news 20 years ago, yet when Google unveiled it, it was only described in a single paragraph in the middle of a larger blog entry. In a world with Apple’s Siri, Microsoft’s Cortana, and Google Now, a free speech-to-text service that works on multiple computing platforms may not seem like big news anymore.

Voice Typing is different, though; it’s kind of a built-in version of Dragon NaturallySpeaking (for those of you who remember or still use that program).

Voice Typing works in Chrome on the desktop, as well as the Docs apps for Apple iOS (iPhone and iPad) and Android.

I was never a big fan of voice dictation. Having been born with keyboard and mouse in hand, I’ve always felt more comfortable that way, and my verbal WPM can’t compare to my typing speed.

But I use Google Docs every single day, so when I learned that it has a Voice Typing feature, I figured I may as well try it out.

It turns out, Voice Typing is awesome! In this article, you’ll learn everything you need to know about voice dictation and voice control in Google Docs, including how to get started and a few essential tips for productivity.

 

Adding Punctuation

Voice typing even understands when you want to add punctuation to your document if you use these phrases:

  • Period
  • Comma
  • Exclamation mark
  • Question mark
  • New line
  • New Paragraph

Note: Punctuation only works in German, English, Spanish, French, Italian, and Russian.

 

Using Voice Commands

Using voice typing doesn’t end with the ability to type words and add punctuation. You can use it to edit and format text and paragraphs inside your document without having to click anything in the toolbar.

Note: Voice commands are only available in English for Google Docs; they are not available in Slides speaker notes. Both the account and document language must be English.

If you mess up and accidentally say something you want to be deleted, you can say “Delete” or “backspace” to remove the word before the cursor.

Below are the steps for using voice typing in Google Docs:

Conclusion

Voice Typing and speech-to-text have come a long way in recent years and with the number of features, commands, and greater accuracy, you could use it to type all your notes or even a whole document.

Voice Typing also helps people who suffer from carpal tunnel syndrome or otherwise experience pain when typing. Once you have mastered all the commands, you may never have to use a keyboard or mouse when typing up a document again!

Amazing right? Check out this Google feature and let me know what you think.

How To Get Add-ons On Google Docs

A word processor requires very little a blank page, typography tools, and a way to save, print, or share your finished documents. The earliest word processors like Word for DOS and WordPerfect offered little more than that. An update here, a new version there, and 30+ years later, word processors offer an embarrassment of riches with more tools that can fit in Word’s tabbed toolbars.
