Monday, June 11th, 2018

A new text dictation method is popping up in Chrome OS. As Google employee François Beaufort shared on Google+, an OS flag enables a new dictation method in the Canary build of the operating system that adds a microphone icon to the system tray as well as a keyboard shortcut for speech-to-text.

System-level dictation is coming to Chrome OS as an accessibility feature

Thursday, November 23rd, 2017

Lately, our dear leader Artem has been preaching the usefulness of Google Docs' dictation feature, which allows you to transform your speech into words. However, to use it, he's had to constantly have a Google Doc open. But according to a code change request, Chrome OS will soon have this functionality built into the system as an accessibility feature. (Too bad Artem doesn't often use a Chromebook.)

Chrome Story spotted a code change request in Chromium Gerrit stating the following:

Support dictation on Chrome OS (initial version/prototype)

- bound to ctrl+alt+s

- each invokation triggers a new dictation session

- sound icon prompts for user to start dictating

- silence triggers dictation completion and recognition result

Test: manual.
