Speech Recognition - Gosh Darn It You Are Good Enough

While it is certainly no Dragon Naturally Speaking, Speech Recognition is certainly good enough for younger students getting their ideas into a Google Doc.

Speech Recognition is not very good at puntuation or the ending of a sentence or paragraph. This is not a big deal since getting a student's speech converted to text is a big step in itself.

After you add the add on, all you need to do is select start. As the student talks it will convert speech into text and insert it directly into your Google Doc.
