Love love love the new speech to text!

I love the new speech to text display! The way the words turn green as you pronounce them is 'genial'! :D

I'm on a computer w/o Chrome at the moment so haven't seen the new feature, but I saw the announcement.

Do you find it's pretty accurate?

I mean, if you say something well does it turn green, and if you mess up on purpose (just to test it) does it recognize the error?

I turned off my microphone long ago because I could say anything and Duo would give me credit.

I, like you, could not resist testing it. What happens is, when I purposely say something wrong ("he" instead of "she", for instance), it does not turn the 'she' green, and I get that "Your answer is ALMOST correct" message, & it lets me get away with it.

Wow! That sounds pretty cool.

Since they did away with the heart system I do a ton of testing - I try out synonyms, word order, all that stuff. I feel like I learn a lot more now.
