Google has launched Chrome 11 browser with some new features, one of which is added support for the HTML5 speech input API, enabling you to talk to your PC.

With this API, developers can give web apps the ability to transcribe your voice to text. When a web page uses this feature, you simply click on an icon and then speak into your computer’s microphone. The recorded audio is sent to speech servers for transcription, after which the text is typed out for you.
