Currently Edge (81.0.381.0) is behaving strange when using the Web Speech API for speech recognition. The interface exists, but does not work AND does not throw any error.

Here is a quick code example:

 

var rec = new window.webkitSpeechRecognition(); 
rec.onresult = console.log; 
rec.onerror = console.error;
rec.start();

 

Are there any plans to either:

a) Fully implement the speech recognition part or ...

b) ... throw proper errors?

 

Since Microsoft is already using speech recognition in Windows, has the technology for offline and online ASR and has the cloud architecture it should be no big deal to fully support it right? :lol:

 

It would be really great to finally get a 2nd browser that actually has a working implementation of the API (Google is doing it for 6 years now since Chrome 33).
