How does it work?

The user can simply click on the voice icon and a small dialog will open up. This signals that user can start speaking. Once finished, the system will try to identify the soken words and write them into the text box automatically. User then needs to click the ‘Search’ button to search for the results.

Where all does it work?

I tested it on Chrome 11 , IE9 and Mozilla 3 and it only works in chrome 11 . It may be supported by other browsers in future.
