WebRTC and WebSockets are recent web technologies that can be used to build real-time audio-visual communications directly in the web browser. They are currently very actively developed and become available on more and more web browsers.
With these new technologies, Ispikit is available in the web browser without the need of installing a browser plug-in. The web browser records audio, streams it to our server which performs analysis and sends the result back to the browser.
So you can now go ahead create your Wespikit widgets and include and share the plug-inless versions as you wish.
As of today, these features are available on recent versions of Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox.If you would like to know more about Ispikit, contact us at .
