Can You Speak Chrome? Google Uses Silent Film to Show Off Browser Voice Recognition

Published on . 0



Need someone to listen? Chrome is there for you. Google hits another one out of the park with a new Chrome Experiment, "The Peanut Gallery," a demo site which lets you add intertitles to classic black-and-white silent films by simply speaking into your microphone. Pick a movie ("The Hunchback of Notre Dame," "The Lost World," and "Phantom of the Opera" are among those on offer) and talk out loud. The experiment uses Web speech API, which most recently was used to bring voice recognition to Chrome users in more than 30 languages. The site also lets you create and share films with friends.
