I know there are other users on this forum, like myself, who end up having to use Google docs more than they would like. I'm a writer at my job and I do a lot of writing and editing in GD. For the most part, I create my documents in Word and then share them as GD, but sometimes I get Google Docs shared with me that several other people are collaborating on.

Up until now, I've been cobbling together a solution by using Speech Productivity clip boards and Voice Computer. But I just discovered this Voice Typing page and it seems like the dictation and editing abilities within GD are actually more robust than I thought they were. Apparently, there is select-and-say ability.

The rub is that while my dictation is very good in GD now that I have turned on the Voice Typing feature, I'm not actually able to use any of the editing commands because I think Dragon is unable to read any text in a Google Doc. Only the Google Voice Typing tool would be able to read the text I've dictated, I think.

Is there a way to just use my microphone for Voice Typing and have it not be listening for Dragon? (Turning off my microphone in Dragon has not worked.) Ideally, I would want to be able to toggle these off and on. Any suggestions?
