Voice Comments on Google Docs?

That's right--they do exist. Have you ever wanted to record your comment on a Google Doc rather than write it? Sometimes, you may want students to respond vocally to a document. With the voice comments extension in Google's Web Store, this feature is now easy as 1-2-3. Simply install the extension. Then, when you are in  your Google Drive, right-click on the document and choose "Open with...voice comments."

Next, you will need to allow access AND, allow the microphone with the Adobe Flash Box appears:

Now, you are ready to highlight text and record. Remember--what you highlight is considered your comments, so be sure to highlight. Press the || button when you're done.

You must now select the share with collaborators button and then, close the tab.

The next time you open the document and click on Comments. You will see your voice recording there.

And, that's it!

How will you use voice comments?
