That's pretty fantastic. Web based voice-to-text is ... well, I didn't think that would happen for a long time.

Tested this -- it was able to accurately grab my voice from a poor mic with some distance. I really wish this worked on non-Chrome browsers but I'm impressed.

> Brazilian Portuguese from the standard one

What's amusing is how the standard is increasingly being set by Brazil rather than Portugal. This used to be the case with US English and the other variants but I have seen some signs that it's going the other way now (I see more and more on Indian English).

  • Power of numbers? Brazilians do have a much stronger online presence, that's for sure. And your parallel is pretty accurate, BTW. 8)
