First use of VOICE TYPING in a Google Document

The service can be used only in Google Chromium.
You open a Google Document and you click
tools
voice typing
then you choose the language ( I prefer US English)
and you click the microphone icon.
It works pretty well if you have a good microphone,
I personally used an external one.

The short text I dictated was from GEORGE ORWELL's book,
"Animal Farm".

Mr. Jones common of the manor Farm, had locked the henhouses for the night, but I was too drunk to remember this to shut the pump house. With a ring of light from his Lantern dancing

At the end of The Big Barn, on a sort of raised platform, major was already ensconced on his

WORD COUNT 404

The words in red contain a spelling error, or are completely wrong.
The words in blue are the ones that the service SHOULD HAVE TYPED INSTEAD.
As I'm a non-native speaker of English, I suppose I've mispronounced a few.


The service isn't flawless, but it looked like a miracle to me!
I sort of felt like, Scotty, on the spaceship Enterprise, dictating to my computer!
Watch him trying to dictate to a pre-voice typing one
on youtube!


There are a lot of extra things  you can do with the text (e.g edit your text), apart from dictating
that you can see here:
