A small backstory… there was once a tool for leaving voice comments in Google Docs which I loved. But, tragically, they decided to pull their integration to be a separate service where you would need to go into their dashboard, sync your students’ Google Docs and then be able to leave voice comments. I wasn’t pleased with the extra clicks/steps involved and so, sadly, whenever asked about the ability to leave voice comments inside a Google Doc, I would have to tell my teachers that there was no easy way.
That was until today…
When this newly found extension is installed on your Chrome account, it will convert the url to an audio action button and play the recording (example images below).
This works in comments for a Google Doc, Slides, Google Classroom, Twitter, Facebook, and many more… So you are probably asking, what is this magical tool (drum roll please) Talk&Comment (website | extension). The video tutorial below highlights how easy it is to use and how useful it will be for you and your students!
