Using the Speech Attribute Feature in Chrome 7

Another new feature that is a part of Chrome 7 is the ability to talk into the browser. This would be useful for Google’s voice search technology just like what is available for smartphones. For the time being we’ll have to suffice with a demo by developer Jeremy Selier, which uses the Google Translate API to convert spoken English into French text.

You don’t even have to use a command line switch for this one. Just make sure that you have the most recent version of Chromium downloaded (the speech attribute demo only works on Windows and Mac). Then head over to Selier’s demo page hosted by AppEngine.

speechattributeThe demo can take spoken language in English and convert it into French. There are a number of uses for something like this, and having speech in the browser will make for some intriguing web applications down the road.

Selier has more details on the code in a blog post. Here is a technical document on using speech for HTML elements for developers.

    But fashion wouldn’t are the way it is without powerful people who may make it be this kind of fabulous, glamorous, entertaining, beautiful, exquisite world, some sort of everybody wants to get a a part of; and yes it wouldn’t be so without people behind the success in the fashion industry; either it’s in New York, Toronto, Paris, Milan or London. Nordstrom is one from the nation’s
    leading fashion specialty retailers.
