Talking to my browser

I’ve just been trying out the demonstration of Google Chrome 11 (beta) support for speech recognition. It’s quite impressive but still caused a few LOLs.

It doesn’t seem to have a problem with an Australian accent, but fricatives prove a little challenging with poor matches for words like chase, tests, tastes, kiss.




If you want to try it out, after installing the beta version of Chrome 11 you can visit this site. http://slides.html5rocks.com/#speech-input
