    Chrome is listening: Google adds Web Speech API to Chrome browser - Liliputing (click for full article)

    "If you have a computer or mobile device that supports speech input, you can talk into a microphone to enter text, initiate voice commands, or perform other actions. Now it's a little easier to do the same thing when visiting websites using the Google Chrome web browser.


    Starting with Google Chrome 25 beta, Google's web browser supports the Web Speech API.


    That's a JavaScript API that lets developers integrated speech recognition into web apps. Right now Google is showing off a demo that lets you enter text into a website or compose an email message just by talking.


    But eventually you might be able to navigate your web calendar, search your online maps, or send email messages, record voicemail messages, or perform all sorts of other tasks using nothing by a web browser and your voice.


    Chrome 25 beta also disables automatic installation of some extensions in order to beef up security.


    You can download the latest beta version of Chrome from Google, or if you're already running the beta channel, just hit the About Google Chrome option in the setting pull-down to check for an update."

    "Earlier today we released Chrome 25 on the Beta channel, and last week we introduced the Beta channel for Chrome for Android. To kick off the new year, we've packed these releases full of developer features. You'll find all the updates described here in both the desktop and Android releases unless otherwise noted."
