I hate typing on smartphone keyboards. I'm not fat-fingered or anything-- I just hate trying to hit those small little buttons just right, and facing the wrath of auto-correct when I miss. That's why I love Android-- most Android keyboards have a little microphone button in the bottom left-hand corner of the keyboard, allowing me to type my texts with my voice, set alarms, or check my email.
Sadly, the smartphone technology has outgrown the average personal computer in this regard. Even after shelling out money for (and painstakingly training) a complex voice-recognition software package like Dragon, you still will not get the full Star Trek-like computer-voice interaction that you can get on a $99 droid equipped with Google Now.
And then there was Chrome. Recent versions of my favorite browser started including the ability to do Google searches with your voice, and finally Google released access to its Web Voice API. Unfortunately, few developers have taken the time or effort to add one little attribute (x-webkit-speech, specifically to) their site search boxes or contact forms, thereby allowing us to search using our voice in-browser.
Enter Speechifier-- my nifty little Chrome extension that turns this...
