Voice Search is a Google Chrome extension that provides a method to search by
speaking. For example, just click on microphone and say
kittens to search for
kittens. If you specifically want pictures of kittens, say
wikipedia world war two.
- Version 1.2
- One-click voice search from the browser button and Chrome OS integration with the Search key.
- Version 1.3
Implement functionality to import and export search engines and settings. Also
provide an interface for setting common "task" terms and give it appropriate
defaults. For example, set map to Google Maps and buy to Google
Shopping and say
buy flux capacitor, or even
calculate cloud height for a 1 megaton nuclear explosion(assuming calculate is set to Wolfram|Alpha). Currently, one must create new terms to do this, and modifying the old term's URI template does not update the new term's URI template. listen to and/or play are likely to be included in this version, but I'm not sure what the default should be so I'm open to suggestions.
- Version 1.4
Detect OpenSearch description files and provide a method to easily add them to
Voice Search. If Google Chrome stable implements
SpeechInputResultCollection, it will be used to chose the closest utterance to using a term, and if
SpeechInputErrorevents get implemented, they will be handled appropriately to inform the user of any problems recognizing speech input.
- Version 2.0
- Support scripted terms and revamp the options interface accordingly. There will also need to be a way for websites to signal that they provide a scripted term. This release is aimed at providing at least some of the features that Mozilla Ubiquity implemented, but for voice.
