    Google touts speech in new Chrome beta, releases API for..


    Google has taken the wraps off the latest beta of Chrome, and is touting the concept of voice-driven web apps to developers.

    Chrome 25 was released on Monday, and comes with a new Web Speech API providing developers the tools to build speech-to-text features into their own web apps

    The new API provides scope for using voice in gaming, or as Google suggests in a demo, the ability to dictate a document directly to a browser, which can then be transferred to an email application.

    The API lets developers use scripting to generate text-to-speech and use speech recognition as an input for forms, continuous dictation and control, Google said in the W3C specification for the API.

    Sooo.... this speech API. Sounds like something I would already use with Windows' built in Speech Recognition feature as it is.
