Voice Typing on Google Workspace


Instead of typing out notes, try using the voice-to-text feature on Google Docs. All you have to do is speak clearly, and Google will transcribe your words for you. Voice Typing is great for taking notes and brainstorming ideas.

  • In a Google Doc, select “Tools” at the top editing bar and then select “Voice typing” from the drop down menu.
    • Note: Voice Typing is only available if you’re using the Chrome Browser
  • A small microphone button will pop up. Place your cursor on the Doc where you want the voice typing to start, click the microphone, and start speaking.
    • Tip: Select the 3 dots at the top of the microphone window and drag to move the window.
  • Click the microphone again to stop.
