Voice Typing in Google Docs
Highlighting text in a Google Doc can be a little cumbersome. The Google Doc voice typing feature is not only magical, it allows you to edit your document with voice commands.
Use the Tools menu to activate voice typing. Alternatively, you can use the keyboard shortcut Control Shift S. This keyboard shortcut also will turn off voice typing.
Click the microphone icon to enable voice typing.
You can speak your punctuation. Say “period” “comma” “exclamation point” or “new line.”
Google Docs allows you to use your voice to edit your document. To highlight text manually, you select the word or phrases you wish to highlight. Going to the toolbar, select the text color icon and switch from text color to highlight. If your window width is small, the text color icon is hidden under the “More” menu.
