Google voice search

Voice search isn’t something new. It’s been out on the market for a while, yet it’s been mainly restricted to leading mobile devices such as iPhone and Blackberry.

Now, if you’ve got the latest version of Google Chrome, you can do a voice search on your computer as well by visiting Google.com with your Chrome browser.

Why use it?

This is a question for many people. Yes, why do you have to use voice search instead of typing it out? Firstly, it provides a convenient way to search if you speak faster than you type. Also, if you’re not sure how to spell your search term, such as ‘aisle’ [I sometimes have to check the dictionary to be honest], you can say it and the word will be typed out for you and the result will be displayed! Easy isn’t it?

How to use it?

Simply open the Chrome browser and go to http://www.google.com/. You’ll see a small gray microphone on the right-hand side of the search box. Click on it and say your search term. That’s it!

Spoken Answers

If you ask your question to Google on Chrome, the answer can be spoken to you. The answer can be a fact, weather condition, stock price, flight status, sports score, currency conversion, mathematical calculation, and more. If you’re a high school student, you will find this feature really great in helping you finish your homework! Shuuu!!!!
