SpeechRecognitionError.message

Obsolete
This feature is obsolete. Although it may still work in some browsers, its use is discouraged since it could be removed at any time. Try to avoid using it.

The message read-only property of the SpeechRecognitionError interface returns a message describing the error in more detail.

This SpeechRecognitionError interface was renamed to SpeechRecognitionErrorEvent in the Web Speech API specification.

Syntax

var myErrorMsg = event.message;

Value

A DOMString containing more details about the error that was raised. Note that the spec does not define the exact wording of these messages — this is up to the implementors to decide upon.

Examples

var recognition = new SpeechRecognition();

recognition.onerror = function(event) {
  console.log('Speech recognition error detected: ' + event.error);
  console.log('Additional information: ' + event.message);
}

Firefox OS permissions

To use speech recognition in an app, you need to specify the following permissions in your manifest:

"permissions": {
  "audio-capture" : {
    "description" : "Audio capture"
  },
  "speech-recognition" : {
    "description" : "Speech recognition"
  }
}

You also need a privileged app, so you need to include this as well:

  "type": "privileged"
