Today, we are excited to announce the release of our Speech-to-Text tool. Creating the Speech-to-Text tool is a project that we have been working on for some time, and we have had it in BETA for the last month.
We realized that this tool was needed when we witnessed the frustrations that many ELA students have with typing, which keeps them behind. The purpose of this tool is to allow all students to keep up with their classmates, regardless of their level of typing skill.
With this tool, anyone with a Kami Teacher Plan, Kami Schools Account, or Kami Work Account can click the text tool, followed by the microphone (you should be prompted to allow access to your microphone, but if you are still having issues, check your computer settings), and start speaking. Your speech will be transcribed in real time into the selected textbox in Kami.
You should have access to this, but if not, get in touch, and we will help you out.
Thanks to everyone who requested this tool as well as to those who BETA-tested it and provided us with valuable feedback that helped us to improve it.
