Description

There is the usual risk that sites and services have come to rely on SpeechRecognition in its webkit-prefixed form, webkitSpeechRecognition (for instance, Google currently only checks for webkitSpeechRecognition in order to enable their tier-1 "translate" infocards on Google Search).

Once SpeechRecognition is implemented in Firefox, we should investigate whether Firefox and the Compatibility Standards need the webkit-prefixed alias as well.
