Voice to Text on Firefox
I'm looking for a plugin or website that is able to convert voice to text capability on Firefox. For Chrome there are many solutions (VoiceNote II, Voice Recognition, Dictanote). And I need to use it on firefox.
In firefox, as I think, permissions settings/UI haven't yet been sorted out however, so permission can't be granted to use it by the user, so it can't be used.

One needs to go to firefox Addon page and search for such addons if they exist.
I didn't have to ask this question if they exist.
HI Lakshitha Samod
Mozilla is working on building in speech recognition but it's not ready yet, according to this article: https://developer.mozilla.org/docs/Web/API/Web_Speech_API/Using_the_Web_Speech_API -- "The permissions settings/UI haven't yet been sorted out however, so permission can't be granted to use it by the user, so it can't be used. This will be fixed soon." Also, I'm not sure where the recognition will be performed so there may be some privacy issues to address.
Until that is straightened out, you might be able to find an add-on (extension); plugins are binary code and may or may not be available for Linux.
Or there might be an OS level facility that can send recognized speech as text to wherever the cursor is. These line was entered using windows speech recognition. That's pretty close.
