Siri, Android, Cortana - The big web companies have been using voice for years. With the fast maturing SpeechRecognition API, you can bring this functionality to your website!

With nearly complete implementation in Chrome, and a better than 50% of users browsing with Chrome - it's possible to expose a fair number of users to voice search. If you're using any of the browsers listed below, you should see a green microphone icon near the search box at the top of the site.

Current Compatibility:

Chrome Chrome Android Firefox Safari Edge Opera Samsung

Paid Extension FAQ

What am I buying?
  • The extension
  • One year of updates
  • Support
Do you still support free versions?
Only bugfixes
Can I install the extension on multiple sites?
Go for it
Can I give a copy to my friend?
While this is ethically wrong, there is no easy way for me to stop it. However, if your friend wants support he should call you - because I won't talk to him unless he purchases the extension.
What happens to the extension at the end of the year?
Nothing. It remains installed and configured, it just stops receiving updates and support is suspended.
What if I give you an idea that you turn into a paid extension?
You'll be given a lifetime subscription for that extension.
What if I contract you to make a custom extension for me?
There are two options, and I may or may not offer both.
  1. You will be given a quote for outright ownership of the extension.
  2. If it's something that I believe will benefit the community, I may offer a reduced quote where I retain ownership along with the promise that it will remain a free extension.
