Voice Search is a Google Chrome extension that allows to perform search queries in Chrome browser by speech instead of traditional way using the keyboard to input the queries. This might be useful for some people that are feeling futuristic or not in so much mood to use their fingers too much. Extension shows a microphone icon in the extension area in the Chrome, but also for the search boxes in the HTML 5 based websites . To perform a search just click on the icon and speak the word or query you want to perform. For example, just click on the microphone and say "kittens" to search for kittens. If you specifically want pictures of kittens, say "google images kittens".
Voice Search comes pre-loaded with the following default services: Google, Wikipedia, YouTube, Bing, Yahoo, DuckDuckGo and Wolfram|Alpha. You can also add your own user-defined search engines. It also integrates a speech input button for all websites using HTML5 search boxes, all of the default search engines’ websites, Facebook, Twitter, reddit, and GitHub.
Speech input is very experimental at this time and may not work perfectly for everybody. Also, you have to speak for very clearly for good speech recognition results.
