Recently I have posted HTML5 web speech search API. But that API has been deprecated. That code has not supported more browsers and sometimes it doesn't work properly.  I would suggest to you use this simple voice search code. It will support all Browsers.

HTML5 Web api code.

<input type="text" x-webkit-speech>

For Enable the voice recognition just add x-WebKit-speech to a text field.

 New speech recognition code.

<form id="form_id" method="get" action="">
  <div class="speech_box">
    <input type="text" name="q" id="search_box" placeholder="Speak" />
    <input name="sitesearch" type="hidden" value="">
    <img onclick="voice_recognition()" src="//" />

function voice_recognition() {  
  if (window.hasOwnProperty('webkitSpeechRecognition')) {
     var recognition = new webkitSpeechRecognition();  
     recognition.continuous = false;
     recognition.interimResults = false;
     recognition.lang = "en-US"; //language
     recognition.onresult = function(e) {
     document.getElementById('search_box').value = e.results[0][0].transcript;
     document.getElementById('form_id').submit(); //form submit
   recognition.onerror = function(e) {
     recognition.stop(); // error msg

  • Voice_recognition - On click the voice recognition icon access the script function.
  • recognition.lang - Search text language format. 
  • search_box - After getting the voice convert to text send the value to search_box class input field.
  • recognition.onerror - It's will display the error message. 


Add CSS for the text field and search box.
    .speech_box { 
      width: 300px; 
      border: 1px solid #DDD;  
      padding: 0; 
      margin: 0
    .speech_box input {
      display: inline-block; 
      border: 0; 
      width: 240px;  
      height: 30px;
    .speech_box img {width: 40px; float: right;  }
