The Web Speech API has two major applications:

  1. SpeechSynthesis: It is used in applications that need text-to-speech features and allows the web pages to read the content available on-page in human speech format. It uses the device's speech synthesizer for performing this.
  2. SpeechRecognition: It is used in applications that need voice recognition and transcribing. SpeechRecognition allows these applications to recognize a specific voice context by enabling the voice as an input and control method just like the keyboard and touch through the device microphone. With speech recognition, users can interact with websites and apps through voice commands easily.
