Expanding voice typing and automatic captions to additional browsers

What’s changing 

Currently users can edit their documents in Google Docs or edit speaker notes in Google Slides by using their voice. Users can also turn on automatic captions to display the speakers’ words in real time while presenting in Slides. These features have previously been available using the latest version of Google Chrome only.

Starting today, Google is expanding support for voice typing and captions features to additional browsers, such as Edge and Safari. When a user turns on voice typing or captions, the Googleb browser controls the speech-to-text service, determines how speech is processed, and then sends text data to Google Docs and Google Slides.
