Voice Recognition and the Speaking Challenge

The 'Speech Challenge' now supports voice recognition on Google Chrome although it's not yet supported on IOS. Go to an interactive picture page such as insects , one of my favorites. (ou  les insects pour les étudiants de français),  After clicking on the 'Speech Challenge' button, click on the microphone toggle on the top bar, and confirm that you wish to use the microphone. Say the name of the selected insect! Upon hearing your voice, the correct word is uttered allowing you to make a quick comparison of pronunciation and word choice. Interacting  with the page this way is a lot more fun than clicking on the page or play button. Please let me know if you experience any issues or see other problems since quite a few changes were made to the scripts.
