Now, we have not only Sinhala,Tamil and English but, lot of popular languages used in the world to support Google Docs “Voice Typing” feature. Around 90 languages. Also you can select different accents in a language. This is called as speech to text feature. Natural language processing is used



Most of the people are unaware about this feature even though they use Google docs. This feature eliminates the cost you spent all this time for other language typists, also no need to have a separate person to do this, you can try it yourself.


All you have to do is go to “tools” then select “voice typing” or else use ctrl+shift+s, after that click on the drop down menu and select the language or the accent you prefer.


When you try this for the first time the outcome would be 70% because this feature takes some time to get used to your voice & accent. So the more you talk with device, the more it will pick up your accent. Gradually it will become perfect.


Not only does this facilitate, dictating paragraphs but also formatting, punctuation & correcting mistakes with commands like comma, exclamation point, question mark, Italics, delete, insert Link, go to the end of the line.


Some formatting commands
    • Copy Cut Paste Delete Delete last word Delete [word or phrase] Insert link [then say the URL you want to use] Copy link Delete link Insert table of contents Delete table of contents Update table of contents Insert comment [then say your comment] Insert bookmark Insert equation Insert footer Insert footnote Insert header Insert horizontal line Insert page break
    • Please note
1. If you say "Delete" by itself, you delete the word before the cursor.
2. If you select the text of a URL and say "Insert link", the selected text becomes a hyperlink.


This feature is so gracious because, this opens a ground for people who are unable to type. All in all it’s a great technology to try, you can speak to your devices.

Simply adjusting policies and retooling previous work models won’t do. It takes a comprehensive reimagining. To help organizations navigate this next phase of work, Zoom is hosting our  Work Transformation Summit  on Jan. 19, a free, half-day virtual event designed to provide you and your organization with meaningful strategies, creative approaches, and innovative solutions for redefining work.  Summit attendees will have the opportunity to hear from peers and industry experts on the importance of embracing technolo
