Compose a Google Doc with Your VOICE!

You can now compose a Google Doc using your voice. This new feature is available on the desktop version of Google Docs and the mobile version. To activate Voice Typing, go to the Tools menu and select Voice Typing. A microphone will appear. Select the microphone to start dictating the Google Doc.

Not only can this be a time saver, but you can also use it with your students who struggle with getting words on their papers.
