Hi, I'm looking for a plug in that is able to add speech to text capability on Firefox. For Chrome there are many solutions (VoiceNote II, Voice Recognition, Dictanote), but I do not want to install and use it. Thank you

Do you know more or less when it will be released in which Firefox version?

I can't tell. There is a recently filed bug to change the default from disabled to enabled, but normally such a change would be for 3 versions from now and then if it tests out safely it could be moved up to a nearer release.

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.

Thank, but I'm looking for speech to text not text to voice. The opposite...
