Speak Your Search
Google Chrome - Use the Google search engine to search for information by speaking terms aloud. (You need Google Chrome to do this.) Open the Google search page, click on the microphone icon in the search term box, speak the topic you are looking for, and Google fills in the search term, just as if you typed it. Then, Google renders the page for you. In some cases, Google even reads a short definition aloud, and as in the example below, the search may render images of your topic, basic information, and shows similar topics, based on what others have searched for. This is helpful when students are doing research.
Google will render specific results for searches you do. This helps eliminate sorting through
pages of material that may or may not be useful to your search.
Quick searches help you find information quickly and easily. You can type the search in the browser omnibox (search box).

Link To Specific Text On A Webpage
You can link to specific text on a webpage or website. Point students, colleagues, or other users directly to specific sentences or information. Saves time; no need to scroll through the entire page. It also focuses the reader on pertinent information, rather than having him/her scour paragraphs of material.
This is very easy to do, and it also works with multiple paragraphs, not just single lines of text.
See directions, in red text, below each image.
This sentence is the example.
Students will be directed to this sentence specifically.
