A full-featured text / HTML editor in the browser now with speech recognition. Even better, Speech+ has voice-operated editing commands for nearly hands-free editing. CKEditor with Speech+ is perfect for mobile, library, and school computers that don't allow software to be installed. We use it all the time.

There's no question online voice dictation can speed up productivity. Of all the FREE voice dictation apps we tested, ListNote and the Speechkeys voice typing keyboard (links to the Android play store) stood out as some of the best, but they all left something to be desired. Using a PC is better for posting complex responses to the forums with formulas and references, but we wanted a "zero installation" web page editing app for use on locked tablets and library computers that restrict downloads of new software. Now we can have a fully-functional text / HTML editing notepad with voice dictation in a web page.
Having already authored FreeSpeech, a real-time dictation application for Linux desktop PCs, it was time to bring that experience to the web. Like many others, we chose to use The Web Speech API. The API is not designed to compete with dictation applications like DragonNaturally(TM) Speaking, and many applications based on it attest to this fact; however, when we combined it with CKEditor's powerful HTML editor and added the following features, we made it quite usable. The hands-free voice commands are a big improvement.
*Note: CKEditor is a friendly WYSIWYG editor, not a true source code editor. It automatically reformats the source in ways that advanced users may not prefer.
Copying. CKEditor and our accompanying speech plugin runs in a web page. As such, web pages may be saved, modified, and re-used. It would be a simple matter to obtain CKEditor and serve it from a web server along with a mirrored copy of our speech plug-in. In fact, it would be nearly impossible to prevent that from happening.
If you appreciate this plugin, as little as a dollar a month will help with development.
Editing and saving occur locally on your computer, but Chrome's speech API sends recorded speech to remote servers to enable real-time speech recognition. A warning should pop up asking for permission to use the microphone. Our server does not retrieve or store any of your audio, but we have no control over what Chrome's API does with your voice recordings. We do not recommend using it for sensitive information that does not belong on public servers. Other browsers like Firefox maintain offline speech recognition solutions.
