Google Unveils Voice Recognition With Silent Film Demo

As part of the roll-out for its newly developed voice-recognition tool, Google has unveiled a nifty little feature that allows users to add subtitles to silent film clips. Open PeanutGalleryFilms.com in Chrome (it won’t work in other browsers) and play around with it, with that caveat that the functionality is still a work in progress. Users have to verbalize punctuation, and proper nouns can yield comical results akin to texting auto-fill gaffes. Google’s voice recognition is an important step toward making our computers actually listen to us when we scream at them. Speech control is also likely to be integrated into Google Glass, so you can now look forward to talking to your eyewear.
