Chrome 11 beta brings voice-to-text capabilities


Wrote Stan Schroeder in a March 23, 2011 post on Mashable, "Google has pushed Chrome 11 to the beta channel, bringing a couple of improvements, including the browser's ability to transcribe voice to text.

"With this new feature, users can click an icon and speak into the computer's microphone, and the browser will turn the speech into text. You can try it out at this demo page.

"The Chrome 11 beta release also brings GPU-accelerated 3D CSS, meaning develeopers can use CSS to deliver fancy 3D effects. The version also features the new Chrome icon [top right]."

Tech-savvy I am not, but I thought to go to Chrome apps store and found it.
After you have upgraded to Chrome 11 then you download the app. A cute little microphone shows up on your screen by the little wrench. Also, you will find the microphone shows up whenever you have to put in a screen name or password - and on your Google search bar!

That makes two of us. I downloaded the beta release but was completely befuddled after doing so (there are those who would question my use of the qualifying phrase "after doing so" but let's ignore them for the moment, alright?).

As is so often the case with Google, you know what you want is in there somewhere but it's like Ronald Reagan's proverbial pony in the barn full of excrement: impossible to find.

Maybe one of my tech-savvy readers will pick up the cluephone and drop a dime on us, to mix a metaphor or two.

I am missing something here. Ye, the demo page works really well. But, are we just given a demo page, or is there actually an icon somewhere on chrome 11 that is usable?
