Voice Typing in Google Docs



Voice Typing was recently released as a feature of Google Docs in which a user can use their device's microphone to convert voice to text directly in a Doc.  It works quite well according to those who are already using it with the possible exception of tables within a Doc.

This feature will mean great things for students with accessibility needs.  Previous software was not only expensive, but also only available in a Windows or Mac environment.  Extensions and Add-ons came along eventually in the Chrome world, but now the feature is directly built-in by Google to all Docs.
