Google Voice Search: Search Out Loud

Posted in Labels: ,

Google Voice Search is a newly released feature by Google. You no longer need to type in your search query but just speak it out loud and Google will do the rest. I can not believe how advanced Google's technology is becoming. It is making our internet navigation way easier and quicker than anytime before. Not only Google is a great resource for educators but the best one ever.



I am crazily in love with its services and i trust them more than i trust myself. My love for Google and my deep recognition of its importance in our schooling has put me in a relentless hunt for its updates. I have even devoted a whole part of this blog to Google’s Educational Tools that every teacher should be using and i have also written an article entitled What every educator should know about google which has made the biggest hits in many educational forums and blogs. I am also working on many papers about how educators can benefit the maximum from Google , just stay tuned for the updates here and you will be able to discover many more amazing facts about this huge internet guru named Google.
As i said about Google Voice Search, queries are conducted via voice and all you need is Google Chrome 11 or higher and a built-in or attached microphone. Just click on the mic on the search bar and start speaking and whatever you say will be automatically typed in Google search bar and results will be displayed immediately.
