If you’re curious about learning how to do a Google Voice search, then this article was written with you in mind. Google Voice is Google’s new text-to-speech software that will allow you to do a variety of searches that include searching for people, finding what you want to know without typing, and doing voice searches (that is, recording voice commands and then playing them back). To use Google Voice Search for desktop, you need to have an account with Google. Luckily, it’s very easy to get an account – all you need to do is go to the Google home page, click register, and follow the simple instructions. Once you’re done, you’ll be ready to try out Google Voice!
To use Google Voice search for desktop, first open Google Chrome. Then open the “chrome” browser by clicking the “Chrome” icon at the bottom left of the screen. Navigate to settings > advanced > Session, and click the microphone tab. Turn on the verbalizer, and speak into the microphone for a prompt.
This is one of the new features in Google Voice search. You’ll notice that there are two options when performing your voice search: standard and mobile search. The difference between the two is the manner in which information is presented to you. Standard voice queries result in text and audio results; mobile searches to present results in the form of icons.
Standard voice searches work pretty much the same way as any other Google search. You’ll enter a keyword, say “hot dogs”, and Google will fetch a list of websites relevant to that term. When you’re done typing, you’ll see a list of sites that are optimized for your search term. Click an icon to have Google deliver you accurate results.
Mobile voice commands are quite different. Instead of typing, you speak into the microphone. If the “vocals” tab is turned on, this also becomes known as speech recognition, and you can dictate various search terms or phrases into the microphone. Your computer will analyze your commands and will deliver the desired Google results based on your voice commands.
In addition to voice commands, you can also use voice search through your keyboard. To do this, click the microphone icon, and speak into it. The program will then detect the keywords that you used, and deliver the desired search results based on them.
Google’s voice search for desktop is integrated with Chrome. To enable voice search, go to settings, and under “Google” click “etics.” Set the “Search Language” drop down box to French (places like France and Canada), or German (places like Germany and the Netherlands), or English (US and UK). Now, whenever you are on any desktop computer using Chrome, just begin typing long term search queries into the microphone at the top of the browser, and begin talking into the microphone.
Obviously, this doesn’t work unless you have both a microphone and a computer that has been set up to use voice search. In order to do so, you need to download Google Chrome onto your desktop from the Google website. Simply follow the on-screen instructions, and install it. You will be prompted to accept a default number of trusted websites to appear first in your Google search results, and of course, follow all of the other on-screen instructions to get the Google Voice Search feature integrated with your chrome browser.
The next step is a bit more involved. Once you have installed Google Voice Search for desktop, open a new dialogue window for your Google account by clicking the Chrome menu at the top right corner of the browser. Select “Google,” then “VRM,” and then “Find my voice.” It will take you to the Google voice search page where you can actually speak into the microphone provided. To activate voice search, click “Search” then “Voicemail” to access your voice mail.
At the end of your speech, make sure you sign-in using a Gmail email account and then hit “OK.” Once done, go to “Settings,” and then click on the cog icon next to “Google.” From there, you will see an option for enabling the Google voice search feature. Enable it, and you will be taken to a voice search screen where you will be asked to punch in your name, your location, and the phone number you want to call. Once you have all of these items entered, you’ll be ready to start calling!
The Google voice search feature in Mountain Lion allows you to type in phone numbers that you want to call into the microphone provided, and then listen to a voice message that will come up. If you are on a computer with Google installed, you can either start the voice search process from the task bar or window, or from the command line prompt that’s provided when you launch Mountain Lion. If you’d like the best experience possible, you should download Google Voice Search for desktop and performs all of your voice search queries from there. This way, you’ll not only get accurate results, but you’ll be able to save time by not having to type in phone numbers on your mobile search queries.
