Mozilla has developed a new Firefox feature that lets you issue commands to your browser using your voice. It is currently available as a plug-in and only recognizes English voice commands.

Mozilla has introduced another facility. The Firefox Voice plugin automatically detects the microphone connected to the computer. Currently, the function works only on desktops and laptops, although if the experiment gains the recognition of users of the popular browser, it is possible that it will also appear in the mobile application version. The add-on can be installed via Mozilla websiteafter registering. Once we do this, we'll be able to open new tabs, search, play music, as well as copy and paste text and links using your voice.

It should be noted that Firefox Voice is currently in beta, therefore errors and underdeveloped solutions may occur. The funny thing is the need to use the keyboard shortcut (default control + dot), or clicking the icon to activate the plugin and issue a voice command. It is probably a temporary solution that will be changed in the future. Another feature that doesn't always work is the ability to configure your own commands.

It is also worth noting that Firefox Voice uses Google cloud computing to process voice commands. However, according to Mozilla, the American company does not use this data to track the user. This may be controversial for users who wanted to cut off from the American "big brother" and because of this they chose the Mozilla browser. Therefore, we should not expect that in this form Firefox Voice will ever be among the other default features of any future Firefox release.

Mozilla is a project initially initiated by Netscape Communication, whose original assumption was the development of the Netscape Navigator browser, which was finally forgotten. | allthingsblogging.com
