Google Announces Voice Search for Desktop

Yesterday, Google announced voice search for desktop. The same feature has been available on Android for a long time. Within the next week a microphone button will appear on the right side of the search bar. To activate voice search click on the microphone and speak your query. The feature will only work with Google Chrome at launch. This feature will be great for people that have trouble spelling. If you do not know how to spell a word that you want to search you can say the word and the correctly spelled word will be inserted. Voice search will also benefit people that have trouble using a keyboard. The voice search feature is not available yet but will be shortly. Google may integrate this feature into its other web services such as Gmail.
