Voice Transcription in Paper?!

Yesterday I was working in a Dropbox paper doc with a colleague and as we were conversing over the phone, I noticed that paper was typing everything I said!  There was a little microphone icon that appeared on the left of my browser screen (using Chrome on a Mac) and it was taking notes off of what I was saying.  I don't know how I activated it OR how I finally got it to stop but it was awesome and its a feature I'd love to acccess more.   Can you tell me how to use that for future reference?  I checked the forums and didnt see anything available on this.  Thanks!

Hi @AndreaParikh, it sounds like you may have been using an OS-specific feature, as the one described here
 
In any case, I’d be more than happy to pass your comments along to the dev team for future consideration. If you have any other comments or thoughts you’d like me to forward, don’t hesitate to get back to me. Cheers!

Really??? Ive been looking for such a feature in paper for so long! I am using Chrome and Paper on a Windows PC. What can I say? I am afraid you really make us feel as if Apple users have everything. Ok Microsft lags behind in the whole speech-to-text business but I dont undestand why Google which does not lag behind, does not integrate it in its browser? I dont understand why i need to download a special plugin to be able to have speech-to-text dictation for gmail in chrome and its not simply integrated in the Chrome browser in general. Please give us a hand here.
