    VOICE TEXTING ON A PC ??

    Being old and somewhat clumsy, I try to do more voice texting than finger. Besides that I'm a one to two finger typer.
    I use Google voice on my phone with a reasonable 90% accuracy. However, if I don't proof read the text before sending,
    it could be kinda embarrassing. Not sure if there is a better way?
    My question is: is there a way that I could set up my PC to do the same thing? That is, to voice text while surfing the
    internet or whatever? And if so, what would be needed besides a bluetooth headset? Thanks much for your time............

    Thanks Spyware Dr; That wasn't quite what I had in mind. What I was hoping for, was the "hey Google thing" where I could click on the mike & ask a question, search the web etc.
    That website covered only phone call texting & not web surfing....

    I found my answer shortly after I made my last post. So far, it seems to be working pretty good.
    So now I have the best of two worlds Thanks again..................

    That's a pretty neat illustration there SpyDr. but that didn't work for me. When I ticked it, it stated mike was disabled. So somewhere I found that by going into the Google account setting,
    I found where to enable it. However, later in the day I tried to set up my wife's PC & could not find that source, so fink, I'm still looking...... (

    In Google Chrome settings/ Advanced/Content settings/ Mike on/off.

    This setting for some unknown reason has disappeared. However, the mike is working ok.
