Google Developing Voice Recognition for Browsers

Ainsley Jones

InfoWorld reports that Google is building speech-recognition technologies not just for Chrome, but for all browsers. Google is hopeful that the audio technology it is creating for browsers could serve as an industry standard.


Speaking at the Google I/O conference in San Francisco last week, Ian Fette, product manager for the Google Chrome team, said:

We're hoping that the text-to-speech APIs as well as the voice input, voice recognition ship in Chrome but also become a Web standard that is implementable by any browser out there.

Google is also hopeful that the technology will lead to a new class of web applications.
