Chrome Speech Integration Stable

Google’s speech recognition technology is amazing and now its on the web.  Recently official support for speech input was added to Chrome.  Adding x-webkit-speech to an input control causes a microphone to appear on the control.  When users press the button they can speak and it will populate the text box.  I can’t wait to see what types of things people will be able to do with this.  Here is an example of the syntax:

<input type="text" speech="speech" x-webkit-speech="x-webkit-speech" lang="en">

NOTE: You must be using the latest version of Google’s Chrome for this to work!
