SpeechRecognitionEvent: resultIndex property

The resultIndex read-only property of the SpeechRecognitionEvent interface returns the lowest index value result in the SpeechRecognitionResultList "array" that has actually changed.

The SpeechRecognitionResultList object is not an array, but it has a getter that allows it to be accessed by array syntax.


A number.


recognition.onresult = (event) => {
  const color = event.results[0][0].transcript;
  diagnostic.textContent = `Result received: ${color}.`;
  bg.style.backgroundColor = color;
  console.log(event.resultIndex); // returns 0 if there is only one result
