Which browsers do support speech?

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

The supported languages depends on the browser and OS. You can get a list of the available voices like the built-in example shows for speech synthesis, and you can enter which language to use for speech recognition too. Node-webkit and Crosswalk are both based on Chrome so it should work there too. I don't think any other platforms support it yet.

What if according to html5test.com my browser should support speech, and my app does not detect it?

@Ashley I know this is way old, but I just exported the Speech Recognition example *.capx using Node-Webkit and the speech recognition failed while saying that it was supported initially. Testing using debug and Chrome worked perfectly, however.

Edit: this was tested with the latest R169 and with/without PNG recompression and script minification.

Thanks, @DatapawWolf. That's the kind of problems I talk about. I can't do testing now because my Windows 7 machine is under repair (the rest of my machines range from XP, now unsupported, to plain old DOS). I hope I could continue investigating this on the last week of june.

@arcalaus I guess we'll have to wait for @Ashley to cover this one. Not sure what's going on but hopefully it can be fixed!

Node-webkit is still Chrome 32, and the latest is Chrome 35. It will probably start working after the next node-webkit update (I was told it's about a month away).

HTML5test.com and caniuse.com are good places to check support, although they list different sets of features. Only HTML5test seems to have speech recognition and synthesis, and there are lists of supported browsers here:

http://html5test.com/compare/feature/au ... ition.html

http://html5test.com/compare/feature/au ... hesis.html

We also have ScirraMark which is a good way to quickly check a specific browser for C2-related HTML5 features.

Don't forget if Chrome supports a feature, that means node-webkit and Crosswalk will also support it, and if Firefox supports a feature, Firefox OS will likely also support it (although it's on a slower release cycle).Ashley2014-02-09 14:05:46

Crosswalk is usually a few versions behind Chrome, so hopefully it will catch up in the near future.
