Modules: SpeechSearch V1.0

Posted by: geekwrighton 2013/2/28 13:51:00 4605 reads SpeechSearch adds a search block to XOOPS which can accept input using the Web Speech API included in Google Chrome as of version 25. On compatible systems, the block will include a microphone icon which will launch the speech recognition, and send the results to the standard system search routines. On systems that don't support the API, it will quietly degrade to mimic the normal system search block.

The Google recognizer handles a wide variety of languages and dialects which you can choose in the block editor. In addition to the cool toy appeal, this has significant accessibility enhancement potential. There are even greater potentials when this API makes its way into the mobile browsers.
