Now many people have Amazon Echo devices, they can just talk to Amazon Alexa for searching anything and Alexa will speak out the search results back to them. This habit has made them very lazy when using their keyboard on their desktop or notebook computers when searching for things on various search engines like Google, Yahoo, Bing or DuckDuckGo.
But now with the help of Voice Fill extension for Firefox, you can get the same comfort and flexibility as with Amazon Echo or Google Assistant. After installing Voice Fill in Firefox browser, you will see a microphone icon in the toolbar. You can click on this microphone icon to browse to your configured search engine and start speaking to search for anything you want. Of course, you have to give permission to be able to use your microphone.
Alternatively, you can just visit any of the major search engines (seems to work only for Google, Yahoo and DuckDuckGo) and click on the extra microphone icon that appears next to the search box. Now all you have to do is start speaking the search phrase and it will instantly show you the search results.
By default, clicking on the toolbar icon takes you to Google search, but you can change it to other search engines in the Voice Fill options. You can pick from many of the localized Google search engines (such as google.co.uk, google.de etc.) or Yahoo search engine. There is no options for the popular DuckDuckGo search engine for some reason even though it is supported by the extension.
Voice Fill extension for Firefox enables voice based search for all the major search engines. It makes it easy for you quickly speak to search for any phrase or text in Firefox browser.
