Google touts speech in new Chrome beta, releases API for devs

Quote:
Google has taken the wraps off the latest beta of Chrome, and is touting the concept of voice-driven web apps to developers.

Chrome 25 was released on Monday, and comes with a new Web Speech API providing developers the tools to build speech-to-text features into their own web apps

The new API provides scope for using voice in gaming, or as Google suggests in a demo, the ability to dictate a document directly to a browser, which can then be transferred to an email application.

The API lets developers use scripting to generate text-to-speech and use speech recognition as an input for forms, continuous dictation and control, Google said in the W3C specification for the API.

I use the voice input on Chrome on my ipad, if it's as good as that (I cant remember it getting any of my searches wrong) then it will be a good addition.
