Google Quick Tip – Voice Typing in Google Slides!

Voice Typing in Speaker Notes is now available in Google Slides, however, it can only be used in the speaker notes area. A work around for using this feature for writing content for the slide is easy. Create  your text using the Voice Typing in the speaker notes and copy and paste to the slide. Of course, you would have thought of that!

Where’s the Voice Typing? You will find it under the Tool menu – Voice type speaker notes – similar to the Voice typing in Google Docs.

Other tool options when writing include use of  text to speech if you have Read & Write for Chrome to review your voice recognition text for accuracy. Other helpful tools available from the Tools menu include spell check, personal dictionary and Explore feature.

Great tools for our students who struggle with writing.
