Sometimes voicing great ideas right away can be a great alternative to typing them and losing some of the inspiration along the way.
To that, the Speech to text feature in Google Docs can be super useful. Here’s how to configure and use it.
Speech to Text for Google Docs in Chrome OS:
- Select the three-line menu.
- Go to Settings.
- Scroll to the bottom of the page.
- Select Show advanced settings.
- Find the Accessibility option to enable the on-screen keyboard.
- Once the keyboard displays, select the microphone displayed above the on-screen keyboard to activate speech recognition.
(For Chromebooks, you can simply enable the on-screen keyboard to access the built-in Chrome OS speech recognition system.)
Speech to Text for Google Docs in Android:
- Install the Google Docs app.
- Open a document, and tap the microphone icon located to the left of the space bar on the on-screen keyboard.
- Now you can start talking and Google Voice Typing will turn your speech into text. COOL right?
