What is Google™ Voice Typing on my Nexus 10 Tablet?

  • Use Google Voice Typing

    To use Google voice typing when you are entering text:

    1. Touch the Microphone key on the onscreen keyboard. When you see the microphone image, speak what you want to type.
    2. Say “comma,” “period,” “question mark,” “exclamation mark,” or “exclamation point” to enter punctuation.
