Newest Version of Google Chrome Has Voice-To-Text Speech Input

Posted Mar 23, 2011

The newest version of Google Chrome has support for the HTML5 speech input API. Through this API, developers can create web applications that converts your voice into text. If a web application supports the API, they generally have an icon you click on and it asks you to speak into the microphone. Google has released a demo of their own for you to try after downloading the newest version of Chrome BETA. The new version of Chrome BETA also has GPU-accelerated 3D CSS. [Google Chrome Blog]
