Speech Recognition (Quiz)

Speech recognition is a great way to motivate the user to speak. Speaking something can better internalize learning topics.


Currently, the speech recognition is not perfect. However, the speech recognition is already very advanced. Use this feature for straightforward and simple sentences that users can speak with dialects and accents without getting annoyed that something correct is not recognized by the recognition system. Test the speech recognition also with your collegues before you publish such elements.
