How do I use Chrome's speech recognition feature to leave a comment in SpeedGrader?

If you use the Google Chrome web browser to access Canvas, you can use Chrome's speech recognition feature to leave text comments on student assignments in the SpeedGrader. Chrome's speech recognition feature turns your spoken comments into text comments.

Chrome speech recognition will default to the preferred language set in your Chrome settings. To change your setting to a different language, view your language settings in Chrome.

View Unsaved Changes Warning

View Unsaved Changes Warning

If you navigate away from a SpeedGrader page before submitting your comment(s), Canvas generates a message warning that you have unsaved comments on the page.

Note: This feature only applies to leaving the SpeedGrader page; it does not apply to the comment field for each student submission. If you create a comment for a student but do not submit it before viewing another student submission, SpeedGrader retains the comment in the comment field for the second student—and any student—until the Submit Comment button is clicked and the comment is officially submitted as part of a student’s submission.

These comments are posted to the global Canvas Community,

NOT your Canvas course.
