So I had been testing something in the Google Chrome browser. I had occasion to use google to search and I noticed the little microphone icon in the search field.
Clicked on the icon and it prompted me to speak my search terms. So I did. Not bad. Similar to the voice recognition on my Android based cell phone.
It dooesn’t tolerate background noise all that well and that is with me using a headset. But it does figure out the text rather well.
