Therefore, you will not be able to write a review directly at the Chrome Web Store using your voice. This is a restriction imposed by Google, not a limitation of the extension. TIP: If speech recognition is not working on a specific website then you can try (1) refresh the web page or (2) restart your computer. This will often fix the problem.

This extension uses Google's Web Speech API for speech recognition therefore we cannot guarantee the quality or the continued operation of the speech recognition service. TERMS OF USE By using this software you agree to the Terms of Use available at http://www.seabreezecomputers.com/speech/terms VERSION HISTORY 7/30/2020 - Version 1.3.5 - Some configurations of tinyMCE Editor were inputting speech twice into editor. This has been fixed. Some network errors and errors caused by conflicting extensions were causing the Speech Recognition Anywhere tab to become active. Added code to try to stop this. Also added suggested default activation hotkey: ALT+S. This will only work on first install if the hotkey is not already in use. Google Chrome's built in web speech API no longer seems to be processing "new paragraph" or "new line" so these have been added as built-in commands for Speech Recognition Anywhere. Also programmed it so that if a user needs to use a built-in phrase for a command they can create a custom command for that phrase. For example: Phrase: new line Action: replace_word(new line) This will allow sentences like, "I tried a new line of dog food" instead of entering a new line in the document. 3/28/2020 - Version 1.3.4 - Improved instructions for Chrome Web Store License. 2/24/2020 - Version 1.3.3 - Text-To-Speech (TTS) can now read in iframes as long as the origin is the same as the top page. Some features are not available in iframes such as specifying to "Read links" or "Read buttons" in iframes. It will be skipped. But "Read page" or "Read article" should read an iframe that is in the same origin if it is on screen. It will not select the text in the iframe as it is being read but it will put an outline around it for a second if "Highlight text being read" is checked in Settings. Also ESC key to pause/resume TTS now works on SRA tab as well as other tabs. Also fixed a bug with "Find phrase" where it was sometimes finding the phrase in the tooltip. 12/17/2019 - Version 1.3.2 - Fixed some bugs with using a voice command to click on form elements Select and Option when. Now changes the size to show the entire length of options instead of just 5. Fixed bug where it would not reselect the top option but would just highlight the select box. Also fixed a bug where it would sometimes not save the tts voice selected but revert back to the default Microsoft voice. It will now allow tts rate to go to a max of 10 for Microsoft voices. But Google voices only allow a max of 2. In Chrome 79 the developers added tab.pendingUrl which caused tab.url to no longer work so that when a user clicked on the Speech Recognition Anywhere icon again it would open a new tab with Speech Recognition Anywhere even though it was already open. Added code to fix this behavior. 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.

  • (2020-07-22) Jose Emanuel Ramirez Moreno: popo
  • (2020-07-19) Alex W: Every now and then when I speak there's some error and it changes tab to the speech recognition tab. Then it displays some error message for a split second, before it disappears. I have never been able to read what the message says. Things like these make me a bit hesitant on buying the extension. Other than that it's a good extension. The developer has already fixed previous problems, which is nice. If I can just solve this error I'll give it 5 stars again.
  • (2020-07-12) Lucian Andries: Awesome extension!!👍👍 It works great and has A LOT of stuff!😲💓 But two small issues keep me from giving it a full score... :( -Despite choosing English US, it always writes in English EU. Example: instead of "color", it writes "colour", etc. Very annoying, I still have to use my keyboard to edit it. Also, Chrome is set to English US as well. -It has to stay open as a Tab, in order to work. Yes, you can Pin it and make it smaller. But still, why??

  • (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.

  • (2019-08-11) 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.

And because of this, the chrome store doesn't allow me to re-buy it... At least Edge allows chrome store extensions. Here's Edge's extension store: https://microsoftedge.microsoft.com.

A real Windows Assistant, not the stupid Narrator cr-app Microsoft is offering!!!! To be able to control your PC using IT: Opening/closing programs, going to settings, changing settings, writing with VTT, reading stuff aloud, answering questions through Google's API Assistant, etc, etc, etc... I'd be the first to buy it, and software test it for you. Also translate to romanian, maybe? Anyway, I know it would be a big project, but I also know there are people who would want and buy this. And if you can keep the website unhackable, so idiots will not replace it with spyware, adware and stupid popup stuff, it will take off in popularity! Depending on the advertisement...
