Do you often find that kids in the back of classroom can’t hear you? Do you often repeat yourself during instruction? Or maybe you are presenting to a large crowd, and have a need for a way to caption your comments? Well look no further than Google Slides.
Recently Google added a feature to the presentation mode of Google Slides that allows teachers to caption their comments during a presentation in real-time.
To use the Caption Tool:
- Click on Present in your Google Slide Show.
- While your slide show is running, navigate to the floating toolbar at the bottom of the screen.
- Click the Captions tool. Your microphone will pick up anything you say and display your words at the bottom of the screen.
If you don’t have a microphone on your computer, there are several inexpensive options available to buy on Amazon. But if you are a Chromebook user, remember you have a built-in microphone, so why not take advantage of it!
