Navigate the web hands free!
A Chrome extension to browse the web using only your voice, free to download and use. Voice Control and Dictation for Chrome! www.handsfreechrome.com Hands Free can scroll, click things, navigate to webpages, navigate back or forward through your browsing history, enter text into forms, check and uncheck checkboxes, zoom in and out, open and close tabs, refresh the page, control YouTube videos, and more. ----------- After installing, restart Chrome, then open any webpage and hit Ctrl + Space. Give the input window permission to use your mic. Then just say "help". If you're on a Mac, you'll have to adjust your settings. Go to System Preferences, then to Sound, then to Input. If there's a little checkbox option that says "Use ambient noise reduction," make sure that it's not checked.

- (2017-09-11) Brandon Dandl: Worthless - it just opens a window that collects the words you say. There is no help or explanation about anything.
- (2017-07-07) Sufyan Dawoodjee: Awesome job with the extension! Hands free browsing is great!
- (2016-12-21) ROOTAMAN: Great potential for the future. I like the ability to show numbers for all links in the webpage! This is the feature that is really save my hands. However I am currently use WSR and Vocola 3.1 and would also like them to work together nicer with this extension as single word commands like MAP, GUIDE or SHOW may conflict with the WSR so I hope user could choose different words for these commands and the user should be able to disable some commands too!

- (2014-05-18) Rob Locke: Cool and lots of potential. However, I notice that if I have multiple windows open, the commands affect all windows (specifically, the "active" tab in each window). Is that a known bug?

Like the other comments, this works great but stops after a short time. I want to use it for up to 30 minutes at a time!
- (2017-11-27, v:1.6.3) Emma James: DOES NOT WORK MOST OF THE TIME!!
Whenever I first open Chrome and Hands-Free, the extension will work for the first 10 or so commands. After that though Hands-Free will not do anything except open a new tab, close tabs or switch between tabs. I thought that this might be because I was using and extension that change the format of all of the text used and Chrome because when I tried using the Voice Typing tool on Google Docs, its functionality as well. So I deleted the font formatting add on from Chrome and restarted my browser (both the one I was trying to navigate around and the input window for Hands-Free) and tried again. Still no luck. I really want to use this extension because I know how extremely helpful it could be, so I am going to try again from Step 1 by deleting the extension and downloading it again. I don't know if this will be able to help anything, but I'm doing this makes the extension actually work that it will definitely be worth the effort.

loving this extension but sometimes it just stops responding. after a while I no longer see anything being dictated on the pop-up window. It isn't from inactivity either. any suggestions? I know I can reload the extension but it would be ideal if I didn't need to do it. thanks!
