Once the microphone is activated you will see the read recording circle. (Most recording applications use the color red to note that you are recording.)

Remind students to talk slowly and enunciate. Some students use this tool in conjunction with Read and Write during Stage 2 of writing.

Voice Typing for Teaching and Learning

  • Hearing your speaking voice
  • Getting your ideas down quicker
  • Focusing on the words not the writing

Common Core Integration

Develop and strengthen writing as needed by planning, revising, editing, rewriting, or trying a new approach.
