Examples

You can use the soundend event in an addEventListener method:

var recognition = new webkitSpeechRecognition() || new SpeechRecognition();

recognition.addEventListener('soundend', function(event) {
  console.log('Sound has stopped being received');
});

Or use the onsoundend event handler property:

recognition.onsoundend = function(event) {
  console.log('Sound has stopped being received');
}
