Help!! – I can see my assignment but I cant edit the page in my google doc

How can I use the iPad to help me to type all the work out

The following video is a very quick explanation on how to use the microphone which is on the built in keyboard on the iapd. When I was dictating the commands did not come out so please note you say “Full Stop” when you want a full stop and “New Paragraph” when you want a new paragraph. Speak slowly and deliberately (like I did on the video) and as you correct spellings etc it gets smarter and knows you voice.

On the video I suggest that you learn to touch type here are links you would find useful for that:
