Google Chrome 25 has Voice Recognition Support11 Nov 2013
When Google released Chrome 25 earlier this year, they noted that the browser now has Voice Recognition Support.
This would be of great benefit to those with disabilities that have a hard time typing but have a clear, audible voice they can use to communicate what they want typed or searched, etc.
Have any of our readers used this feature? If so, how useful was it?
Why has it taken Google so long to put voice recognition software into their browser? When will the needs of those with disabilities be put in the forefront of decisions that assist, or put on level par, the use of new software.
I find that as software is being updated it is aimed at the ‘touch screen' and keyboard shortcuts are being eliminated which I find frustrating as using a keyboard over a touch screen is my preferred choice.
