Web Speech Recognition and Audio Capture Example

This demo was based on the tutorial Voice Driven Web Apps: Introduction to the Web Speech API by Glen Shires.

This is a minimal example of the API to help get you started. See Google's Demo for a more complete example.

The API captures segments of speech, sends them to Google for processing and handles the returned text.

This version also captures the user's speech via web audio, analyzes it and display a frequency spectrogram.
The version without the spectrogram is HERE
