Speech to Text jQuery Plugin Example


General usage is to select the input and/or textarea fields that you would like to enable speech to text on.

$("input, textarea").speechToText();



You may specify a class to reset any custom CSS you have applied to input fields. This is used as a dummy input has to be created to enable speech to text on textareas.


This plugin uses the HTML5 speech attribute which is currently only implemented by webkit (Chrome, Safari, iOS, Android, etc) and only natively on <input> elements.

This plugin was primarily designed to bring this functionality to the <textarea> element, but it is still limited by the support of the HTML5 speech attribute.
