This would work maybe 25% of the time. There's no way Chrome is going to be able to recognize complex and oddly-named city and street names.

But if you've got a proof of concept that shows you saying the names of cities and streets which are then spelled properly without editing, I will change my mind.

Thanks @photoplex. Not to say that @jarihu your idea doesn't have merit, but general dictation is a lot different than city and street names.

I'm only submitting this request because it appears to be a really simple change. Affect on the interface and other browsers is unknown. If it adds icons or stuff on the screen, it could be too tight a space to make it workable. Waze will decide.

If it lets you vote, you can, but I doubt you have rights to do so.

Enable speech input to WME

Postby jarihu » Sun Sep 01, 2013 3:11 pm

You could use Google Chrome to and speech recognition to input cities and street addresses to WME if you just modified the HTML input tag to include the "x-webkit-speech" element.
Code: Select all
<input autocomplete="off" maxlength="100" name="cityName" title="City name" type="text" value="Helsinki" required="" x-webkit-speech="">


Could you do this minor change please?

My experience differs. I used several Finnish city and street names ( and those are known to be hard to pronounce correctly for most English-speaking people) but Google got them right every time. So, would it really hurt if you just enabled this possibility and people could use it if it worked for them?

Just played around with the voice input facility on Google's search home page. Success rate of understanding the street names I was speaking into it was 3/10 at best.
