Wouldn't you like to talk to your APEX app?

Of course you are familiar with Martin Giffy D'Souza's blog talkapex.com (if you're not, check it out - it's really worthwhile). But wouldn't it be nice to not only talk about APEX, but also to APEX?
The only thing you need is a recent version of Chrome (11 or up) and a microphone. And then...just by entering "x-webkit-speech" to the HTML Form Element Attributes of your input item, you have speech-enabled your application!

All "speech enabled" items will get a little mic at the end. When you click on it, you can say what you like. Oh yeah..and it works for number and date fields as well!
One remark : Whatever you enter will go through Google's voice recognition ... so Big Brother is listening in on you!
