Mac Tip: Enable Voice Typing

Mac Voice Typing

Sometimes I feel like dictating my typing. Other times I can not figure out how to spell a word so I simply engage the voice dictation to help me to figure it out. Using voice dictation can be really handing when providing students feedback. I am able to look at student work and give my response to it as I am going through it.

System Preferences

Click on the apple in the upper left hand corner to get to “System Preferences.”
