Description

built-in speech recognition is part of OS X 10.2.x. chimera does respond to
speakable commands, but only in the capacity as the "Front window."

IE contains some application-specific speakable commands as AppleScripts stored
in ~/Library/Speech/Speakable Items/Internet Explorer/. a useful script is "make
this page speakable", which acts like a speakable bookmark keyword.

OmniWeb, by contrast, includes quite a few speakable commands which are
built-in, not AppleScripts. you need to enable them via the OmniWeb speech pref
ui. some of these are quite useful, including commands that allow you to access
links in page content and switching btwn browser windows.

it'd be really cool to implement this in chimera. not sure if it should be as
AppleScripts or built-in --whichever causes less bloat or perf issues, i s'poze.
:)  here are a few suggestions:

access link (eg, via text)
open location
switch btwn browser tabs
switch btwn browser windows

oh, another nifty command Omniweb has --which would be derived from page info if
chimera were to use mozilla's page info implementation (or something similar)--
is listing the links available in the page.

Simon, what's required here? The a11y APIs (bug 157209), or beefed up Apple Events, or?

This bug has been buried in the graveyard and has not been updated in over 5 years. It is probably safe to assume that it will never be fixed, so resolving as WONTFIX.
