Google demonstrated the silent film capabilities of Web Speech API according to a blog post on Tuesday, announcing a new web portal The Peanut Gallery, which let users add titles in-between old black-and-white movie clips by talking out loud while watching it.
The feature follows on the webkitSpeechRecognition browser support, which provides the speech interface and sets the attributes. However, since the API is still experimental, it's currently vendor prefixed.
Google is hoping that developers will find more useful purposes for the Web Speech API as regards, web navigation, interaction and entering text on the web.
