Say bye-bye to keyboards
« on: August 15, 2012, 12:58:41 pm »
Ever noticed that microphone icon on some web pages? The newer versions of Google Chrome include an impressive speech recognition engine that even works offline but with one limitation – the feature is only available to text input fields (like the Google search box) and you can’t use Chrome’s speech recognition to write longer pieces of text (say a message inside Gmail).

 Meet Dictation, a speech recognition app powered by Chrome itself but one that is not limited to text boxes.

 Here’s a quick getting started guide:
Use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl + Shift +. (Period) or click the big microphone icon to activate dictation mode and talk.
If you make a mistake, or if Chrome makes an error in transcription, simple click the incorrect word and edit it inline.
You can say “new line” to insert a new line or “delete everything” to make a fresh start.Dictation requires the Google Chrome browser. The full source code is available at ctrlq.org and what follows is a brief video demo.
