annyang! Easily add speech recognition to your site Go ahead, try it… Say "Hello!" Annyang! Let's try something more interesting… Say "Show me cute kittens!" Say "Show me Arches National Park!" Now go wild. That's cool, but in the real world it's not all kittens and hello world. No problem, say "Show TPS report" How did you do that? Simple. What about more complicated commands? annyang understands commands with named variables, splats, and optional words. Use named variables for one word arguments in your command. Use splats to capture multi-word text at the end of your command (greedy). Use optional words or phrases to define a part of the command as optional. What about browser support? annyang plays nicely with all browsers, progressively enhancing browsers that support SpeechRecognition, while leaving users with older browsers unaffected. It looks like your browser doesn't support speech recognition. Please visit in a desktop browser like Chrome.
