|Voice navigation is now commonplace on modern-day Android devices, but on the desktop, many of the accessibility tools that would bring voice commands to the end user still require special system level software or customized hardware.
That's not the case with a new Firefox add-on called Firesay, which brings hands-free voice controls to just the browser. Once installed as an add-on, it can pick up voice commands to do Web searches, open and close sites, and even pull up TV shows on Hulu.
The number of commands, and sites users can visit is extremely limited for the time being. You can, for instance, only open up a handful of Web sites and TV shows, as long as they're in the list of those that have been programmed in. Though the add-on is able to recognize and transcribe voice commands for its Web search feature. The add-on also requires that the user is on Windows 7, leaving XP, Vista, and Mac OS users behind.
