voice controls for google docs

Note: Voice dictation in Google Docs now actually exists! Take a look at the update here.

Voice Controls for Google Docs have been a work in progress for quite some time now. They’ve finally been released for Google Apps customers, and it’s much more impressive than I expected. Check out today’s video to learn more!

If you’re like me, you probably get sick of typing on the computer all day. I mean sometimes I would just rather talk to my computer than tap on the keyboard. That’s where voice controls come in. And it’s accessible with a simple keyboard shortcut!

Voice Controls for Google Docs uses the same voice recognition software found in the Google Search bar to pick up words to near perfection. Use it to dictate a paper, perform a simple command, or even write a Spreadsheet function. The possibilities are endless!
