TERMS OF USE By using this software you agree to the Terms of Use available at http://www.seabreezecomputers.com/speech/terms VERSION HISTORY 8/19/2019 - Version 1.3.1 - Removed "Komma" as punctuation in Swedish because it is a common word. scrollToPosition() uses isOnScreen() now and smooth scrolling. 5/29/2019 - Version 1.3.0 - The converter can now do advanced scripting with the script() command or by changing semicolons in code to url encoded %3B . Also saying "Show labels" now labels text inputs and textareas. 5/6/2019 - Version 1.2.9 - A custom command with replace_word() can now have multiple phrases separated by a vertical pipe | . Also fixed a bug where "Delete last word" was deleting the entire last phrase instead. 4/23/3019 - Version 1.2.8 - Updated Terms of Use. Also, fixed bug where previously if an action had a blank command separated with a semicolon then the phrase would be typed twice. 3/25/2019 - Version 1.2.7 - If the phrase "Play|Listen To|Youtube" is spoken then the video will no longer be played in the current tab unless the current tab is youtube. Also if the "Action" field is empty for a Custom Command then that command will not be acted upon. Also switching tabs by url or keyword in title is now easier and better. 3/7/2019 - Version 1.2.6 - New simple word replace feature. For example, to replace "ok" with "okay" in your speech then use this custom command: Phrase: ok Action: replace_word(okay) Fixed custom commands bug where a phrase separated with vertical pipes like ^hi|hello$ will match "hi there" and "well hello" without wanting it to. 1/20/2019 - Version 1.2.3 - Improved Screen Reader features such as reading of ARIA roles and html tag names for certain items like IMG and Hyperlink. Also a "Simple Mode" that does not read ARIA roles and html tag names. 1/8/2019 - Version 1.2.1 - Fixed a bug where "Read selected text" command was not working. Also added to "Read notification" command to also read role="dialog" and role="alertdialog". 1/5/2019 - Version 1.2.0 - The custom command speak() for Text-To-Speech was no longer working in Chrome 71 because Chrome is trying to stop audio from playing automatically without user interaction. Changed the Text-To-Speech speechSynthesis to play in the background script instead of the page. Also added Screen Reader features. Now you can say "Read selected|highlighted|article|website|site|links|page|webpage|paragraph|alert|notification|status". Press ESC to stop reading or say "Stop reading". 12/28/2018 - Version 1.1.9 - Translated commands to Italian. 12/15/2018 - Version 1.1.8 - Now there is an option in Settings to "Remove Google's Auto Capitalization" where Google's speech recognition sometimes adds capitalization to phrases that are the same as sport's teams, movie titles or song titles, etc. Also accidentally removed "FREE TRIAL (x days left)" in version 1.1.3. Fixed. 10/8/2018 - Version 1.1.6 - Better error handling in multiple languages. Faster Initializing. Added Swedish punctuation and commands. 9/30/2018 - Version 1.1.5 - There is now a delete button for custom commands. Also added punctuation for the Czech language. 9/21/2018 - Version 1.1.4 - Improved language support including French, Japanese, Chinese Simplified and Chinese Traditional. 9/19/2018 - Version 1.1.3 - Improved language support including Italian. 6/29/2018 - Version 1.1.1 - ATTENTION WEB DEVELOPERS: You can now call javascript functions on your websites using the "Action" field of Custom Commands. With this powerful feature you can create websites with voice recognition accessibility or voice activated assistants. 6/29/2018 - Version 1.1.0 - Fixed the command "New line" to work again because Google's Web Speech API stopped using it. Also fixed "New line" and "New paragraph" to output more nicely and to capitalize the first letter after a new paragraph or new line even if the last sentence did not have punctuation. 6/5/2018 - Version 1.0.9 - Speech Recognition Anywhere had stopped working in Google Docs because of a Google Docs update. This has been fixed. Also in Google Docs it was capitalizing the first letter after every speech recognition phrase even if it was not a new sentence. This has been fixed as well. Also fixed a bug where in custom commands a remembered match in a regular expression ( ) in the "phrase" was only being replaced one time and not globally in the "action". This has been fixed, so now $1 in the action will be replaced with the remembered match multiple times or globally in the "action". 4/8/2018 - Version 1.0.5 - Export/Import custom commands. Also "(Play|Listen To) (song)" is no longer in commands, but is only in custom commands. 3/29/2018 - Version 1.0.4 - Custom command word replace now appears in Speech Recognition tab text box. Also previously if "Phrase" or "Action" fields for custom commands contained a space for the first character then it would not be recognized. This has been fixed by removing the extra space. Also Speech Recognition Anywhere now works better with Facebook Messenger without having to press Spacebar first. And to send the message you can say "Press Enter" or "Click Send" at messenger.com. Also works better with Google Hangouts at hangouts.google.com. You can now say "Press Enter" to send the text. Also new and improved custom command: keypress(key, ctrl, alt, shift) that now works with more websites. 3/3/2018 - Version 1.0.1 - New Feature: Speech Recognition Auto Punctuation. With Auto Punctuation enabled you no longer need to say "period" or "question mark" at the end of a sentence. Just pause briefly after each sentence and the punctuation will be added automatically! Speech Recognition Anywhere now works in Word Online with a few bugs: It first tries to type the speech in "Tell me what you want to do" box and you have to click in the word processor box again. "New Line" and "New Paragraph" commands do not seem to work. Also improved speech interaction with HTML FORM SELECT fields. Now saying "Click on select" or "Click on (an option)" will open the select menu bigger and fire a Change event if the selection is changed. Bug Fix for TinyMCE: Now it capitalizes the first letter of a sentence if it follows punctuation. Bug Fix for CKEditor: After saying "new line" now the first letter of a sentence is capitalized. 2/1/2018 - Version 0.99.9 - All commands have been translated to work in Spanish! Also all the text in the action field command print_text(text) now preserves the letter case as it is written by converting all letters to unicode html entities. Previously, words at the beginning of sentences were auto-capitalized. Also some users are expecting the textbox on the Speech Recognition Anywhere tab to be editable. So now it is editable. 11/20/2017 - Version 0.99.4 - Added punctuation and commands in German language (Deutsche). 9/28/2017 - Version 0.99.2 - Now Speech Recognition Anywhere works with Google Docs! Also fixed a bug where it would try to scroll to a cursor in a textarea but sometimes scroll the screen when it did not need to. 9/11/2017 - Version 0.99.0 - Added punctuation for Spanish and Portuguese. Also added locales for Spanish and Portuguese. Fixed bug where the page would scroll past the textarea, such as youtube comments, when trying to scroll to the cursor. Fixed by adding elRect.height > 0. Added "Find word or phrase" command. Fixed bug where "new tab" would not use Speech Recognition because it was using "chrome://newtab/". Changed to "https://www.google.com/_/chrome/newtab" and now it works again. 2/1/2017 - Version 0.98.4 - Added Text to Speech (tts) and scripting. Now you can create custom commands that talk back to you or read text in an element in a web page. In the "Action" field type in: say(Hello There) . Or to go to a webpage and speak the text in an element, type in the "Action" field: http://website/com;speak(element_id) . For more information go to seabreezecomputers.com/speech/ . Also changed recognition.continuous to false instead of true to try and solve slowness with the recognition result or multiple second delay with the Web Speech API that some users have. 10/28/2016 - Version 0.98.1 - Languages and dialects are here! Added an option in settings to choose between dozens of languages and dialects for speech recognition including: Afrikaans, Arabic, Basque, Bulgarian, Catalan, Czech, Dutch, English, Filipino, Finnish, French, Galician, German, Greek, Hebrew, Hungarian, Icelandic, Italian, Indonesian, Japanese, Korean, Latin, Lithuanian, Chinese, Malaysian, Norwegian, Persian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Serbian, Slovak, Spanish, Swedish, Turkish, Vietnamese, Zulu. We need volunteers to translate punctuation and commands into these languages from English. Please contact [email protected] 09/12/2016 - Version 0.9 - Speech Recognition Anywhere first release.

  • (2019-09-11) Rom Yatziv: This seems to work well as long as I'm in a text area. Google keep and Gmail integrate quite well. Places where it's a textbox, like Facebook, etc, seem to have trouble both with dropping words, and capitalization.
  • (2019-09-02) MaoFu Tseng: Can it be set? Just identify "number"例如:20=惡靈;98=酒吧,這在數字辨識上,很困擾
  • (2019-08-11) Bob Builder: I really like this. IF you make a desktop version for windows, that allows me to speak into any app, like a chat room app that runs from my desktop, or a document or my note taking app " Notion " . Then I would promote the heck out of this app .
  • (2019-08-09) _Lâm Lê Hoàng Bảo: very great
  • (2019-08-03) Stephan Helbig: Die Spracherkennung funktioniert wirklich sehr gut und nimmt mir viel Arbeit ab. Ich schätze es sehr, dass man die Spracherkennung direkt im Browser verwenden kann. Aktuell nutze ich sie zum Schreiben von E-Mails oder zum Verfassen von längeren Texten.

  • (2019-04-20) Daniel Sellinger: as a physician, who for a decade or more, was having to use a 2000$ dragon medical dictation software and install, re-install, update, upgrade, etc and have onsite and online support many times, not to mention expensive microphones for each setting that had to be set up, re-set up, etc., this has been a true blessing !, i had a previous list of macros and templates i had created for dragon that i simply implemented into sra, and with jeff's help, was able to simply transfer them into the app. VOILA!, now since i am fully integrated into google and chrome, i can use "anywhere" i am, at the office with my pc and pixelbook, at home with my pc and pixelbook, and "it just works" !, set up. speak into the devices microphone and you're ready to dictate ! thx jeff ! dan s
  • (2019-04-06) Maria del Pilar Chlopas: not good, and pricey for all the limitations
  • (2019-03-20) Daniel Berg: Sadly this extension joins the long list of transcribing apps/extensions that just don't cut the mustard. Too many frequent error. Does not automatically add full stops or other punctuation causing you a great deal of work post transcription which is precisely what you want to avoid.
  • (2019-03-17) how do i get it off ? its not enabling a delete from chrome option its getting me blocked signing i everywhere and the computer is getting mixed messages how dio i delete this app .
  • (2019-03-06) Jack Hammer: I'm dictating this. And putting the most glaring errors. In parentheses. I was seduced by this add on when it first came out. it seems like a great idea because! I like to write the way I speak. But it's been loaded with glitches. Ever since I got it. And paying for it didn't make it any better. Annoying things like. Adding oh. To the end of phrases. But (that) you have to go back. Elite. (delete) I'm (and) getting entire passages of words wrong. And sometimes it will get an individual word wrong. And you can go back and pronounce that word. (I spoke "again and again and it didn't pick it up) As articulately. As possible. And it won't change the word. That it has put up. Or sometimes it changes. (the word to ) Another word that you didn't intend. No matter how you. Pronounce it. Now I see that I have turned on. Punctuation. And it is adding. A period every time I stop a phrase every time I take a breath. Also, in long messages it works slower and slower the further you get into it, far slower than I type. And (it) makes more mistakes. . In the end it ends up taking more time. To dictate something using this. Then it does to just type it. Because. Up (of) time spent going back and correcting. It's mistakes. Like that is supposed to read. Because of the time spent going back and correcting its mistakes.. So, I'll stop the punctuation so it'll quit adding a. Every time I stop speaking. But I don't really know what to do about all of the errors that it makes? Paying for the full version. Didn't change anything. I'm very disappointed. On the one hand. It's a great idea! On the other hand. It's so flawed that it takes more time than it does typing. By the way. My laptop is an intel. I7 8550u chip. What's (with) 12 mags (megs) of RAM? Running upgraded. Oh, that's supposed to be updated. And you see it added oh, windows 10. and up to date chrome. And I'm using. A handheld. Vocal singing microphone. That is almost as good. Has (as) my shure sm58. I've tried it with that microphone too and it makes no difference. I use this one because it has an off on switch.. The volume is up high enough. That I can speak. 10 inches away from the microphone. What the tendency is. It starts making so many (mistakes the tendency is) To hold the microphone right up to my lips. And it makes no difference either.. See ,that was supposed to be no difference either. (it's refusing to add the word "way") Any ideas? I compose this in gmail.. Using the add-on. To highlight the mistakes. So now I'll copy paste it. As is. So it's not only ends up taking longer (and) it adds to your frustration. I've gone back. And read this three times trying to correct. (the) Mistakes. And I'll bet I still didn't catch them all.
  • (2019-02-19) Peter Sommer: Still showing "expired trial" three hours after paying for full version (and having the payment acknowledged by Google accounts.
  • (2019-02-10) translipcorsia: Sadly, this is only a free trial. Regardless of whether you want a free version or not, there is no free version. Also, I am dictating this review using Google Chromebook's built in dictation, which means that turn certainly is a way to make it work in every single box. Free, forever. My advice, just invest a little on a Chromebook and you'll have a limitless voice to speech dictation machine.
  • (2019-01-28) Der Jensen: Hab keine Kreditkarte sonst würde ich es kaufen TOP.
  • (2019-01-07) speedybird: After a few days of searching Chrome and the web, I've settled on this extension to use for speech to text. I love it and it appears to have AI (or I'm speaking more clearly) as its repeating my words more clearly each time I use it. I just have one really stupid question that I can't seem to find the answer to : after finishing a sentence with a full stop and then space, What is the command for starting my next sentence with a capital letter please (blushing in embarrassment lol) PS Just off to buy the full version. Also, I don't mind having it open in every Window. I always open new windows with Twitter followed by Youtube subscriptions page and i'll just add this one next. Thank you Jeff, awesome software!
  • (2019-01-01) Jonathan Bauer: I was excited to learn about this extension, but it appears my expectations were excessively high, in part due to the name including "Anywhere". The speech recognition only works for me in a Chrome browser window. Furthermore it only works for me when the tab is in the same window as the Speech Recognition tab. (I usually use many Chrome windows.) The extension worked well when using Google search tab in the same window. On the other hand, I ran into issues using it even in the same Chrome window, including this review text. This is not what i expected based on the description, "The speech you speak is automatically typed into any form on any web page handsfree." I'm a fan of the developer's concept of leveraging Google voice to text and would love to switch from Dragon Naturally Speaking. I hope i'm doing something wrong or that there are workarounds, such as disabling other software that interferes.
  • (2018-12-25) Jane Hitchcock: Hi just got this extension and it seamed to work well when I was talking... but my need is to get typed vocal recordings Ive made... I couldnt get it to type anything from my recording... is it possible to get your text from a recording.. It was from my iphone 7 recorder( if that makes a difference.) Thanks for your help..
  • (2018-12-22) Jonathan Pineault: The most functioning voice recognition extension for Google Chrome. I had a lot of issues with other voice recognition apps for Google Chrome. Plus, you can use voice commands to navigate (didn't try it yet)! Very good to write e-mails and fill any forms.
  • (2018-12-18) Lucian Andries: Awesome extension!! It really works great. But.......... Please make it work WITHOUT keeping that tab open! No offense, but it's confusing, annoying and stupid. I always end up closing it by mistake, then I don't know why it's not working... :((( Please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please!!!! Thank you!

  • (2019-12-11, v:1.3.1) Lucian Andries: Language Accent?
    Hello. I don't know if it's only me again, but the language accent is not working....... Despite me setting US English, it still writes in an EU English. What I mean is, for example: -In US english, the word color is spelled as "color". -But in EU english, the word color is spelled "colour"... And no matter which English I choose from the list, it always writes everything in EU english. And I hate it! :((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((( I know they are both correct, but they put a tone of variants(accents) for the same language for a reason, yes? The spelling should change on every variant. Is the extension doing this, or is Googles API broken? :( Thank you.

  • (2019-10-25, v:1.3.1) Todd Nunley: apps it will work with?
    Since this runs within the Chrome Browser; I'm going to assume it works fine on Linux and Chromium is this correct? My main interest is for my father who wants to 'speech to text' his memoirs. He has done some of this in the past only to loose it all to a failed laptop. I encouraged him to use Google Docs which saves to the cloud.
