Voice Typing in Slides


Google just added the ability to use voice typing in Slides.  There is one caveat though… it only works in the Speakers notes section. Here’s how it works.

You may get a message asking for permission to access your microphone.  Allow this.
Once you do, just click the microphone icon and begin speaking.

Again, this only works in the speakers notes.  But, you could copy and paste that text into the slide itself for an easy workaround.


Google Classroom just added a “Copy code” option!  Now you can quickly copy your enrollment code to give to students.
