Latest Chrome Beta lets developers integrate speech recognition into their web apps

Google Chrome Speech Recognition

Pretty soon, every major web app could have its own version of Siri. Google (GOOG) on Monday released a new version of Chrome Beta that includes a new Web Speech API that Google says will let developers more easily integrate speech recognition capabilities into their web apps. Among other things, Google says that the API will let developers create apps that let users “dictate documents” or “control game characters with your browser using only your voice.” Google’s efforts to give Chrome web apps more speech recognition capabilities come after some developers late last year started a new Chromium project dedicated to bringing the voice-enabled Google Now personal assistant to the Chrome browser.
