Now use just your voice to create Google documents

Google has finally released full voice recognition capabilities for creating and editing your Google documents. So instead of hammering away at a keyboard in order to get that last-minute report created, you can now use natural language voice commands to build out your document as well as navigate inside it.

Besides being able to transcribe voice into text, this new feature is also able to recognize commands such as “copy”, “go to the end of the line”, “highlight word” and can even insert punctuation.
Access this functionality in your Google documents by simply clicking Tools, then selecting Voice typing. Note that this feature is available in the Chrome browser.
Besides being a really cool feature for users that tend to dictate plenty of notes (lawyers and doctors rejoice,) this functionality will be a boon to visually impaired users and those with motor impairments.
