NOTE: THIS WILL ONLY WORK IN THE CHROME BROWSER!! 

To install Speech Recognition

  • Click on Add-ons
  • Click on Get add-ons


When the Add-ons menu shows up, type in speech (or speech recognition) and click enter


When you see Speech Recognition, click +Free 


When the Request for Permission pops up, click Accept.


TO USE SPEECH RECOGNITION

On your Google Doc, you will then see a popup that directs how to use the Speech Recognition Tool:
  • Click on Add-ons
  • Click Speech Recognition
  • Click "Start"
    • On the sidebar, select language and dialect and then press "Start" to begin.



Click Add-ons -- Speech Recognition -- Start

Select your Language and Dialect (where the country is listed) and then click "Start" to begin
(MAKE SURE THAT YOUR MICROPHONE IS ENABLED)



 When you are done click "Stop"
