Google Chrome Voice Recognition app: Type with voice on Google Chrome


Have you ever imagined dictating to your computer when you are tired of typing? It would make our jobs even easier as bloggers to say things and our computers will be writing them down for us. You can dictate pages of documents even without touching the keyboard.

A voice recognition app for Google Chrome has made this very possible. With this voice recognition app you can write emails, narrate essays and long documents in the browser without touching the keyboard. All you need is just a microphone-enabled computer and yourself to make this happen.

The voice recognition app simply activates the built-in speech recognition engine of Google Chrome to transform your voice into digital text. And the best part is that it supports several languages other than English, so you can dictate in Arabic, Chinese, Spanish, French, German, Italian, Malay, Indonesian and more.

To begin a new sentence, simply say “New Sentence” to begin a new sentence, or say “New Paragraph” to begin a new paragraph. At the end of a speech session simply say “Stop listening” to end the session and click the “Start” button to resume transcription again.

You can export your transcribed text to your cloud accounts like Dropbox, Google Drive or any directory on your local computer or even send it to yourself or someone as an email. Dictation uses Chrome’s Local Storage to save the transcriptions and thus you’ll never lose your work.

Download the Google Chrome Voice Recognition App.

Install the app on your browser, and launch it from your Chrome apps. Allow the app to access your computer microphone and click the click the “Start Dictation” button and start dictating to your browser. See video below.

Once you are done dictating, you can stop the app from listening by using the “Stop Listening” command. Now you can save your transcribed text locally on your computer or email it to yourself or someone.

I find this Google Chrome voice recognition app very useful when am lazy to type. And I can assure you that I use it very often. A few mistakes could be made while transcribing but you can correct it by clicking on the text area and correcting it manually.
