Subtitled "Your Practical Introduction to Adding Browser-Based Speech Capabilities to your Websites and Online Applications", this project-oriented book simplifies the process of setting up and manipulating the API in the browser using little more than a text editor or free software. Author Alex Libby shows how to use the HTML5 Web Speech API to quickly add voice capabilities to your websites. The book presents a starting toolset for developing projects that use speech input to reduce the reliance on entering choices through a keyboard and making the overall experience easier for customers.
