I'm excited about The Web Speech API which is supported in Chrome 25 (which was just released).  Being able to search with your voice in Google search and on mobile devices has been a great feature for some time now.  Now desktop apps can take advantage of this built-in browser support using standardized code.

Why not let users search with voice input on your web site or type in an inquiry form using their microphone?  Another small feature that can make your web site even better.

Here is a list of web speech API demos:

Now that we have a standard for high quality speech to text, what will you build with it?
