Google Bringing Voice Recognition to Chrome Web Browser

People are using voice recognition technologies on smartphones. A Parks Associates survey showed more than half of U.S. users of the Apple iPhone 4S are "very satisfied" with the Siri voice-command feature. Another 21 percent are satisfied. Thirty-seven percent of iPhone 4S owners also want to have a similar voice-command interface for their TV set, and roughly 20 percent do not.

"People are expressing some reservations about Siri that could impact its popularity on other platforms," said John Barrett, director of Consumer Analytics at Parks Associates. "Some said Siri didn't work well against background noise. Others said it had trouble understanding commands. These problems could be amplified in a noisy living room, where the main TV would be located."
