Configure Speech Recognition

Set whether websites can use the W3C Web Speech API to recognize speech from the user. The Microsoft Edge implementation of the Web Speech API uses Azure Cognitive Services, so voice data will leave the machine.

If you enable or don't configure this policy, web-based applications that use the Web Speech API can use Speech Recognition.

If you disable this policy, Speech Recognition is not available through the Web Speech API.
