Latest reviews

  • (2022-08-17) Nova: I was excited to try this, but apparently it won't work on Edge. It recognizes my commands, but it can't act on them. Hopefully all Chromium browsers can be supported at some point.
  • (2022-08-11) Don St.Clair, LMT: This is simply not working for me. Nothing happens. The toolbar icon light is on; its theoretically working, but nada. Using the Brave Browser (Chromium based).
  • (2022-08-09) Nek0: Never thought to look up for voice-to-text for a desktop as I was doing most work from my mobile. Had some technical questions and Miko was super helpful and answered right away. This is the way any paid apps for Premium subscription should be. Thank you so much! Highly recommended for the accuracy and just saves SO much time. The subscription is really inexpensive considering that...
  • (2022-07-18) Adrian Wilson: Pointless unless you go premium, I'm using a different dictation tool to write this review because you can't do it with LipSurf It does seem a great product, but life is getting full of little monthly subscriptions you rarely use, and there are many free products out there which can do speech dictation. Shame as I really liked the demo on this one.
  • (2022-06-09) Rex Chan: I love this because it does not have to type and scroll
  • (2022-05-16) Ankur Singhal: Simply awesome. Earlier I did not read the tutorial and It was difficult to use. But after taking tutorial, I just felt awesome. In comparison to dragon, It can be used on system with low configuration. Just a request to developer, To provide Lipsurf for desktop also in addition to browser.
  • (2022-05-14) Michal Baran: seems like a nice extension but paying 8$/month for dictation option is a ridiculous price
  • (2022-03-17) Adam: Amazing, using it for wanikani reviews. great for my wrists!
  • (2022-03-11) Henry Symms: It is amazing and I am pleasantly surprised by how good and user friendly the interface is
  • (2022-02-07) Shoq Value: This app must be some kind of scam. no quality app would disclose that it's a totally paid app, and demand your email to even test it on any app page besides his own Chrome page. I can't test it in one real world case . Other than that second everything said by babyGremlins's review below. In this day and age I need to trust a vendor . God only knows what this person does with your data . You should make a completely free testable version like voice input does it just limits the features unless you pay a premium . $8 a month is insane. You can buy a dragon for a one time fee and now you're getting some of the finest engineered software in the world . I will be very suspect of this app if he doesn't change his policies . But that's me . The glowing reviews with no mention of these obvious problems makes me very suspicious that those reviews are all fake views.
  • (2022-01-24) Liz Jmz: It is one of the most useful extensions I have ever had! It has helped me a lot to practice my English and dictate my emails much faster. My favorite tool ir within Duolingo, being able to use the app just with my voice.
  • (2022-01-18) BiLL Scorpion: Não podem adicionar Português (Brazil)?
  • (2021-11-26) Anandi Wonder: As far as I know the only extension of its kind making browsing truly accessible to people with hand and wrist injuries, or anyone else who might need voice control, plus better dictation then the brand name programs. There are some glitches but they're minor compared to the usability and range of options and customization options, and are rapidly being smoothed out (they're very responsive to user reports/ issues). This has truly improved my life so much
  • (2021-11-24) Babygremlins: This app does nothing it's a rock unless you pay $8 a month and it's not even clear in the description that this is the case. The overview shows that it's for dictation and speech to text but then you won't find that out that you can't use it until you get in it and it asks you for $8 a month. The description of this extension needs to make it more clear that this is an entirely paid app there is no functionality for free. I wasted a few hours on this extension. Why would you pay $8 a month for something that is just an extension to Chrome when you can buy dragon for around 200 and it will input text into anything including into your browser. At $8.00 a month this app will easily cost the same as dragon which does everything not just browser input.
  • (2021-09-26) Annette Lambert: The main reason for this to use it for dictation. They don't tell you until you try it that it is $6 dollars a month which is ridiculous for an add on extension that does a simple task.
  • (2021-09-18) Tony D: I have hardly finish the tutorial and I can already tell that this software is just as good as any of the high-dollar shiny packages out there.
  • (2021-07-30) Naga: I dont know how to use it.
  • (2021-07-15) Alexander Kent: Great extension!! I feels really futuristic to navigate your computer with voice commands and not having to touch it. The extension is very well thought out and executed just as well. Would recommend!
  • (2021-07-10) Allen Klesh: I love the extension and use it all the time but like my Chrome keeps shutting it down has anyone else run into this?
  • (2021-07-05) Gio: it worked but the main reason i downloaded it was to scroll on reddit but it only went to old reddit
  • (2021-06-19) Leonardo Aldarondo: Really helpful extension! I use it everyday and it has helped me tremendously with my hand pain. Definitely recommend it.
  • (2021-06-05) Kaushik S: my name is Dr Shreya Sriram,I love lip surf.Very easy to use and extremely simple.Makes my work 4 times faster and its a great tool.I save incredible amounts of time and im killing it in my lisencing exams getting the paper work part of my job done totally fast because of lip surf.Lip surf is way easier and faster than other apps of speech to text.
  • (2021-01-14) Ryan McLeod: This is really great for WaniKani. I've had one or two mega bad bugs, but the dev team seems to be really responsive and fixed them quickly.
  • (2021-01-09) Chandraprakash Loonker: i only use dictation and the comments apply to just that feature. PROS Miko the developer is extremely responsive if you face any problem. Works way better than many other tools i tried on MAC. Dragon does not work on mac. CONS Dictation feature, i miss the most is that it does not learn. If it misspells something it keeps doing the same mistake again and again. There is no way to tell it to associate a pronunciation with a different word (build it's dictionary).
  • (2021-01-07) z court: What a joke. Icon extension does not display on/off state. I say 'Tab'. It shows 'Champs'.
  • (2020-12-26) Sola Babatunde: I LOVE THIS!! It fixed my Spanish Speaking habits in no time and it is super helpful when I am using 2 monitors. Highly advise using it 💖💖💖💖
  • (2020-12-23) Andrei Balan: the add new commands thing is not working
  • (2020-11-30) AjayKhatiwal: it's very helpful 😍😍
  • (2020-11-25) Little Man: A great idea and extension for the Duolingo App. Please keep improving it :)
  • (2020-11-25) Shivum Rampersad: i cant even activate....
  • (2020-10-19) Caleb Hollifield: I used to practice Spanish on using Duolingo's app using the voice to text on my phone. This allowed me to focus more on my speaking and do more lessons more quickly. I stopped using Duolingo's app and switched to using their website, because there are no "lives" or limitations on the number of mistakes you can make and it is still free (Pro-tip). Despite the website version making my words per minute typing score probably more than double I still missed the speaking progress I had made with my iPhone speak to text hack. I missed that one iPhone feature enough to one day trying a multitude of different speech-to-text chrome extensions, before finally having my prayers answered by this masterpiece of software right here. All other voice-to-text Chrome extensions I tried (highly rated extensions, might I add) all required a lot of hands on clicking of buttons every time before speaking, didn't cross over languages very well, or just plain didn't work on the Duolingo website for whatever reason. This extension not only is the best text to speech app, but designed for practicing Spanish on the Duolingo website. -Once you enable the extension with one click it stays on for a set time period (adjustable in the settings) and there is no other required clicking or inputs. -LipSurf automatically selects the submit button when you voice the correct answer on the Duolingo website (can turn off in settings). -LipSurf only types what you say. I have had zero trouble with the extension trying to convert sounds coming from my computer (like during the listening exercises on duolingo) -LipSurf will still type your mistakes so it is not a crutch. TL;DR This I used to use the speech-to-text on my iPhone and quickly saw a lot of progress in my speaking. Now I primarily use Duolingo's website instead of the app. This answered my prayers.
  • (2020-09-20) Harold Altvater: Total waste of time with Brave Browser on a Mac
  • (2020-09-18) Aiden Bok: Very useful but problem is that im from Hong Kong so i need to say a few times before it senses it
  • (2020-08-26) J Z: I like it because it's plenty fast. Lots of commands for a smooth experience.
  • (2020-08-14) Ali Elgohary: doesn't work on new edge?
  • (2020-07-14) Judith Ringers: This is spectacular. I use it mostly on Duolingo and it's made me do ten times more in a day than I did before. I love this extension.
  • (2020-07-06) Celia Wroble: This is incredible! Not only is it extremely easy to use and navigate, but it makes practicing languages more fun and you feel more involved. I have been learning French for 3 years now and I feel this is the best tool I have come across. I'm always worried about my pronunciation and this extension has really helped my feel more confident.
  • (2020-07-06) Frogg: me gusta porque solo apretando puedes dirijir tu pantalla!!
  • (2020-07-06) translipcorsia: Terrible app. I understand some options are only for premium users, but DICTATION?! Come one, pretty much any other dictation app (the built in Google voice included for free in Docs and Translate) will not charge for this. If you want an app that lets you dictate with high accuracy without charging, try VoiceIn. You guys should state that this is a paid product from the description. The very purpose of installing it is for paid only users. Why would anyone install this demo then?
  • (2020-07-04) Matthew Krawchuk: This is amazing. Perfect for studying my japanese!Thank you for posting this on the learnjapanese reddit man! SUPERSICK!
  • (2020-06-26) Mike Beal: This thing is incredible. It really does help with using in Duolingo. There are sometimes where it doesn't understand but those are minor quirks. Very impressive
  • (2020-06-24) Caylon Travis: This thing, is absolutely badass. I can't believe this hasn't been commonplace in browsers for years.
  • (2020-06-24) Chris S: Didn't realise how bad my Spanish pronunciation was (on Duolingo) - this app really has me improving my speaking ability!
  • (2020-06-24) Shireen Lakhani: I can't recommend this highly enough. I use this extension with Duolingo exclusively. I have struggled for the longest time with improving my speaking skill. I now dictate to Duolingo which forces me to speak Spanish. I've been using it every single day and am seeing great improvement in confidence and accuracy. Sooo glad I was recommended this add-on. Thank you for creating this resource!!
  • (2020-06-23) Alejandro Salazar: A terrific, terrific piece of work. Complements Duolingo beautifully by further emphasizing oral skills (and being quite strict about the quality of the pronunciation). Absolutely superb effort.
  • (2020-04-01) Jinesh Patalia: horrible app...free mode is just unusable... besides interferes with homepage... very intrusive
  • (2020-03-11) Ali Asif: This is the quickest and one of the most accurate speech-to-text tools that I have used as of now and I am certain that it will only get better as the days go on. Not only that, but it goes beyond speech writing and allows us to navigate our browser without using our mouse. I am so excited about further features that I know we can get with future updates. Thank you LipSurf.
  • (2020-02-28) M D: Just awesome, good job!
  • (2020-02-26) Hogan VanSickle: There are enough positive words in the English language to describe this product! I am a quadriplegic and unable to use my hands to type on a keyboard. I have always had to rely on inferior products whose accuracy was dismal, yet I still had to pay two or $300 for their software package. LipSurf does a fantastic job of accurately dictating what I am speaking. It also makes it incredibly easy to navigate the web with just my voice. Not only is the product far superior, but their customer service is the best, bar none. Every time I have had to email with the question, I got a prompt response with an answer that solved my problem. This application is highly customizable and will work wonders for anyone. I just wish I found it sooner.

    Hi! Dealing with a bad case of carpal tunnel and was really excited to give this a try but unfortunately it is not functioning for me. I have given microphone access. The plugin icon is saying that it is activated, however nothing happens when I attempt to prompt.

    Dictation mode should be integrated as a toggle ON always now. Please update Also, accuracy is not as good as Word or Outlook. It should self correct for placement (leave a space from last period) and should correct for common sounding english and words. Please keep working. thanks

  • (2021-02-01, v:3.11.2) cem akpolat: Alfred and LipSurf
    Hi, nearly four years ago I implemented with my students a quite similar version of your application. Features are nearly same, there are some additional ones. What was your ambition to develop this project?
  • (2021-01-09, v:3.11.1) Ryan McLeod: WaniKani sometimes stuck on wrong language
    Sometimes after doing a lot of WaniKani reviews with LipSurf it gets stuck trying to interpret my commands as English, even though I'm trying to do a Japanese reading. The commands in the help dialog show up as Japanese, so LipSurf seems to THINK it's in Japanese mode, but the text showing up at the top of the screen is only ever English, try as I might to read the Japanese word in front of me. It's pretty frustrating because so far the only way I've figured out how to fix it is to totally close/re-open the browser, which I don't want to do in the middle of a WaniKani review session.
  • (2020-12-28, v:3.10.0) Audrey H: Randomly stops taking voice input in WaniKani
    Lipsurf randomly stops listening when doing Wanikani reviews, usually when trying to speak Japanese input. It will sometimes accept English, but sometimes doesn't accept any input at all until restarting the plugin. I followed the support steps to try to resolve this issue but it didn't work. Could it be because I have other Wanikani scripts running?
  • (2020-12-18, v:3.10.0) Larry Zhu: Stops working intermittently in wanikani
    voice recognition stops working during wanikani and while I can restart the plugin on a different page, it only works for one word before becoming unresponsive again.

  • (2020-07-31, v:3.6.0) Olive Cove: Bug that prevents Lipsurf from listening until a new tab in opened
    When I open Chrome, the start page is the Lipsurf page. On this page, even after activating Lipsurf manually, it does not listen for commands until I add a new tab. This appears to be a bug.
  • (2020-07-30, v:3.6.0) Olive Cove: Can I start chrome with LipSurf activated by default?
    This is instead of having to click to activate it, or getting premium for wakeword voice activation. The way I use it is to start chrome using Cortana hands-free, and then I hope to start using LipSurf rightaway without an additional click
  • (2020-07-22, v:3.6.0) Andrew Gans: Question regarding LipSurf
    I have nerve damage in both hands and arms, so I use Dragon, but there are so many bugs with it that I'm looking to switch. Does your software enable you to click the mouse by saying "mouse click" and "mouse double click"? Thanks for your help.

    The service has been inconsistent for about 2 weeks. I have uninstalled and reinstalled and sometimes that woks. It is not anymore. Red light and "EN" is visible, the balck command box pops up. The preview is accurate, turns green, but no text appears.
  • (2020-02-28, v:2.13.1) M D: Very helpful functions

  • (2020-02-17, v:2.13.0) David Yossarian: New Tab Setting Update
    New update has broken my new tab page. Supposed to be FVD Speed Dial but Chrome settings telling me that Lipsurf is “controlling this setting”. Even if I turn off the setting to use Lipsurf on new tab page (using Lipsurf settings), Chrome still says that Lipsurf is “controlling this setting” and I can’t get it to show my speed dials on new tab. I have tried a few things but whatever I do it seems I cannot have Lipsurf and and FVD both enabled without Lipsurf controlling the new tab page. Turning off the Lipsurf new tab page only gives me the default Chrome new tab page.
  • (2020-02-04, v:2.12.0) Anijatsu Gentlemen: Brave browser
    I have tried to use this plugin in the Brave browser, however it seems that it doesn't recognize my voice at all. I have checked Windows 10's input meters and the browser has asked for microphone permission, thus I am not sure if the application is at fault here.

    I used it all day, everyday, and this morning it's just not working. . It “activates” when I click the button (red dot appears and “EN” appears) but no speech registers. I have closed browser window and reopened. I have checked the microphone which still works on my computer's integrated voice command. I tried no headphone mode and it’s not working I need help and can’t have downtime today. Please help troubleshoot ASAP. I sent an email if calling is faster. Thanks

  • (2018-11-25, v:1.5.0) Hark: LipSurf in Vivaldi Browser
    Hi, I have recently discovered Vivaldi as a decent alternative to Chrome, although I mostly use Firefox. I installed Lipsurf and it appears as normal, however it does not detect anything i say. I don´t know if its just because it does not have the permissions which i don´t really know how to change, or if its because I am using Vivaldi. Thanks Hark
  • (2018-11-05, v:1.2.0) Alexander Campbell: Can't access the tutorial
    Nothing happens after installation, if anything is supposed to happen at all to guide new users through configuration. I click the extension icon to enable voice control, and nothing. I right click to check the options, and the microphone permission seems to be active, but no verbal prompts work. On the same page, underneath a header titled Subscriptions, there's a continuous buffer. I can't seem to find any way to make the extension work, which is a shame, since I was excited to check it out.
