FAQ

Why is there no microphone button beneath the search form?

There could be many reasons for this:

  • You’re not Google Chrome (check out the browser support here)
  • Your theme doesn’t use the get_search_form() function properly. The plugin relies on the default search form markup
  • Your theme does some CSS things that prevents the microphone button from being displayed.

Does this plugin still allow users to type or does it entirely replace typing with voice search?

No, users are still able to type in the search box whatever they want. Voice search is just a nice addition.

How does it integrate with other search-enhancing plugins such as Relevanssi?

In my tests there weren’t any problems with other plugins like Relevanssi.

Great plugin for voice search. It also works perfectly in Greek. No training required, as with other voice searches. I tested it on a computer and on a mobile phone with male and female voices. It works immediately and understandably.But one very small problem I have is that the microphone graphic is black and the background color is dark gray as well. So it is not distinct. I tried to change the background in the search area, but it didn't work. Any help on this?
