After a long time without posting anything, I’m back – at least for the moment 🙂
Last 2 days, I have built a Chrome extension named VoiceFiller Speech To Text, which uses the SpeechRecognition interface – a technology part of Web Speech API for converting speech to text and fill website forms.
Your voice will not be sent to our servers and it’s useful when you have a lot of forms to complete and want to have a lightweight extension to do that.
Firstly, you have to set your language, pressing the main button that will open the extension’s settings.
After saving your spoken language, for the extension to know from what language need to convert the voice to text, all is set.
To test it, you need to go to a certain website, focus in a form input or text area and press the keyboard combination Alt+R, accept microphone permission for that site and start speaking.
You will know when to speak when the extension icon will look like this:
When you will finish the speech, you can press again the Alt+R combination or wait for the extension to auto-detect when you have stopped talking.
For any questions or bug reporting, you can write a comment down below or complete the contact form.
- added support for live transcription
- UX improvement: when the browser updates, do not re-open this page
