Lockheed Martin : Desktop voice search
American security and aerospace company enables voice search on its corporate website
The search function on lockheedmartin.com is accessed conventionally via a magnifying glass icon in the site header. This triggers a search bar with a simple free text field.
But unconventionally, for corporate websites at least, in desktop view there is a microphone icon next to the input field. Clicking it for the first time prompts the browser to ask the user to allow access to the microphone; assuming they do, the user can then speak their search instead of typing it.
The voice search worked reasonably well in our tests, although it did not always pick up the first word of two-word searches.
The microphone does not appear in the search when the site accessed via a mobile device.
