Description

2 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:45.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/45.0
Build ID: 20160315153207

Steps to reproduce:

Visited here: http://www.moreawesomeweb.com/demos/speech_translate.html (on linux openSUSE with Firefox 45)


Actual results:

It reports "Your browser doesn't support window.speechSynthesis from the Web Speech API." and the JS console shows the error:

    TypeError: window.SpeechRecognition is not a constructor


Expected results:

It should support the API.
It's still disabled by default as per the MDN doc.
