Firefox Voice Beta starts
[Image: firefox-voice-mozilla.png]

Firefox Voice is a new experiment by Mozilla that has just been launched as a beta. The experiment brings voice controls to the Firefox web browser and is currently only available for desktop versions of Firefox.

Interested users may visit the Firefox Voice Campaign website to join the beta and install the Firefox Voice extension in the Firefox web browser.

The extension requires a truckload of permissions but that is understandable considering that you control different parts of the browser using it. You are asked if you want to allow Firefox Voice to collect voice transcripts and make them available to Mozilla for research purposes; you can allow or deny the request.

Note that Firefox Voice makes use of the Google Cloud Speech Service; any voice command is submitted to Google's service. Mozilla notes that Google does not record these commands.

Firefox Voice is not the first attempt to bring voice controls to Firefox. Mozilla launched an experiment called Voice Fill back in 2017 to "speak to" search engines.

Firefox Voice detects microphones connected to the computer automatically. Since you control the browser using voice input, it is necessary that at least one microphone is properly connected to the device.
