Not really a discussion, but more of a tip. I stumpled on `x-webkit-speech` the other day and thought it was pretty cool so I whipped up a demo and tutorial.
So basically you can turn on speech recognition for any old input in Google Chrome using the `x-webkit-speech` boolean. You can try out the demo and reed the full tutorial here:
The demo is also available on Github
Also, is this something you’ve ever used on a live site? I think it’s pretty gimmicky, but could see use cases where it would be cool.
I think one case where it might be useful is on a search engine, like if Google implemented it on their homepage. I definitely think that it isn’t a good idea to enable it on every input on your page.
