Welcome to Kenny-s Blog

My computer can hear me: You can now speak to type in Google Docs

So you have an essay or dissertation to write and there is a word count limit of x thousands of words.

First you have to gather your thoughts, thinking about layout/structure, references right? so you grab your good old note pad to scribble stuff before you start typing.

Before you know it you have written on six A4 pages


Well Google has a way to help out. Google has built new dictation software into Google Documents. Speech to text isn’t exactly new; as it is already being widely use in iOS’ Siri and Google Now.

The video below give a brief overview on how to use this feature

I tried this features myself and I must admit I’m impressed. The system coped well with my accents.

Please leave a comment on your experience of using this cool tool.
