If you’re using Chrome, Google Docs can turn your spoken words into text, inserting them into your document. Switch this on by clicking Tools on the toolbar and selecting “Voice typing.” This feature works best if you speak clearly and slowly -- such technology cannot instantly transcribe a breezy, casual conversation -- and wearing a headset with a microphone can also improve accuracy. Google Docs’ voice typing recognizes over 40 languages. You can even issue document editing and formatting, as well as navigation commands by voice. The tool recognizes several phrases as commands, which will pause its transcribing, to execute: “Select word,” “select all,” “align right,” “italicize,” “go to end of page,” etc..
