Voice to text using Chrome

Dictation stores everything in your browser locally and not a byte of your data is uploaded anywhere.

Quick thought; wonder what it would take to port the basic functionality to a local-only version?

Dictation uses the HTML5 Web Speech API that is currently implemented only in Google Chrome on the desktop. For Text to Speech, it uses the SpeechSynthesis interface of the Web Speech API that is available in Chrome, Microsoft Edget and Firefox.

The rich-text editor is built with Quill while the voice command interface is made possible with Annyang. Dictation uses the Github API to publish dictated notes online as anonymous gists.

It would be really useful on phones.  I've had this notion from time to time of recording different people as human-chatbots.

Yep, you could search while you walk, etc.

About 10 years ago, I knew a blackhat (never in th3core group but did attend the Limerick Roadshow) who said he had a program that transcribed sports radio broadcasts to text and quickly ftp'd it to his server for content.  I don't recall if it was completely automated with an html wrapper or required some handwork.  That came to mind when I saw this.

You're forgetting that Chrome frequently phones home.
