    Voice to Text in Chromium Not Working

    Hi,

    I have Lubuntu 16.04 LTS, 64-bit on my MacBook 3,1 (Late 2007) and the chromium "app", speechnotes.co, stopped working. When I hit the record button it blinks the red dot in the tab as usual but it does not create any output text.

    I already tried disabling all other chromium extensions, enabling my microphone, enabling cookies, enabling tracking, but the problem persists. The weird thing is that the same built-in microphone works in google hangouts and firefox but NOT speechnotes!

    Any ideas what I might do to fix this problem? Thanks for reading!

    Chrome Version: 66.0.3359.181 (Official Build) Built on Ubuntu, running on Ubuntu 16.04 (64-bit)
    URL: speechnotes.co

    I think it's the same problem I posted here https://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2419452

    It seems that after a year the bug is still present...

    If you are getting old/blind/deaf - we all do eventually - then an Apple Macbook is best. On Linux, the accessibility support is sorely lacking.
