Awful dictation software: shame on you, Google.  First of all, you force people to use Chrome, and defeat the "voice typing" option in other browsers. Why don't you just permit users with Macs or modern Windows computers to use the built-in system dictation facility in Docs, just like they can in all other programs – – even Gmail.

Even using Chrome, the experiences is  bad: in my testing, when I inserted dictated text, it went into the document in a nonstandard way, such that I could not move, delete, or undo it.

And, of course, true to Google form, you don't even offer this feature in the your other productivity apps (ex Sheets). Then again, based on my experience in Docs, perhaps you were doing us a favor

Why don't you stop trying to force everyone in to your nonstandard technology. Permit system calls to already good dictation tools available to owners of Apple and Microsoft products.  They work really well. I'm using the Apple dictation technology to dictate this entire message and have only had to make minor corrections. I should be able to work just as quickly in Google Docs.
