Installation

  2. Activate Voice Search through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress.
  3. Visit your website and start searching using your voice.

FAQ

Why is there no microphone button beneath the search form?

There could be many reasons for this:

  • You’re not Google Chrome (check out the browser support here)
  • Your theme doesn’t use the get_search_form() function properly. The plugin relies on the default search form markup
  • Your theme does some CSS things that prevents the microphone button from being displayed.
Does this plugin still allow users to type or does it entirely replace typing with voice search?

No, users are still able to type in the search box whatever they want. Voice search is just a nice addition.

How does it integrate with other search-enhancing plugins such as Relevanssi?

In my tests there weren’t any problems with other plugins like Relevanssi.

Votazione

Aggiornatela grazie.
Purtroppo non sono in grado di dare una stella in più vedremo se riprenderete il supporto e aggiornerete per tutti i browser compreto il nuovo internet edge.
P.S. inserite anche una serie di colori per adattarla meglio al tema dei vari siti.
