Over the years, I have written about several Google Chrome Extensions that may benefit individuals with or without special needs. I have yet to cover the VoiceNote II Chrome Extension, however.
VoiceNote II is a standalone word processor that opens in its own Chrome window. The extension’s key feature is dictation, which allows children to use their voice to write.
Here’s more about VoiceNote II:
“This tool helps with typing speed and spelling accuracy. It can reduce repetitive strain injury. It can allow more efficient notetaking from videos, books, et cetera…”
Overview of the VoiceNote II Chrome Extension:
- Free speech-to-text tool for your Google Chrome browser
- The extension’s speech recognition feature requires an internet connection (as well as a working microphone)
- Basic notepad capabilities do not require an internet connection
- You can create a desktop shortcut to quickly launch the word processor. Here’s how:
- Install VoiceNote II
- Go to address:
- Right-click the VoiceNote icon
- Select “Create Shortcut…”
- Resizable floating window
- Use on-screen buttons for adding punctuation
- Drag and drop the text from the extension to other text boxes
- And more!
