What is Click by Voice?
'Click by Voice' is a specialized Chrome extension that assigns numbers to each clickable or focusable item on a webpage. Users can activate these items via keyboard commands, introduced manually or via voice. This extension does not itself provide voice functionality. Instead, users can use other services like Vocola for voice commands. The extension supports functions like focusing on input elements, clicking elements, and opening links on both the same and a new tab or window.

Summary

Click by Voice numbers each clickable or focusable item at all times and allows activating them via keyboard. For example, to open a link numbered 13 in a new window, you could manually hit control shift space then type "13:w" into the resulting pop-up then hit enter. In practice, a voice command like "window pick 1 3" would be used to type these keys.

WARNING: this extension by itself provides no voice functionality; procurement of the needed voice commands is the user's responsibility. One recommended means of doing this is to use Vocola (http://vocola.net/).

Supported functionality includes focusing input elements, clicking elements, opening links in the same tab/a new (focused) tab/a new window, and removing the keyboard focus from the current element. For how to use Click by Voice, see https://github.com/mdbridge/click-by-voice/blob/master/README.md. CbV provides functionality similar to that of Firefox's mouseless browsing extension for voice control.

Normally it works fantastic, but lately it doesn't work anymore!! On neither of 2 PC's. I guess since the latest update from June 4th. Please, help!! Normaal gesproken zeer tevreden, maar sinds een dag of 10 werkt het helemaal niet meer!! ik zie nu dat de laatste update op 4 juni 24 was, dus ik denk sindsdien.
