Support for voice?


Does lightning support voice input from a remote? If so, how? Can’t seem to find anything relating to it in the docs.

If Lightning does not support voice input, then are there any good libraries that can handle this, or would it be purely up to specific TV implementation? If this were the case then how would one handle this with lightning?


Hi @myusername,

Voice input from a remote is a very TV/STB platform specific thing. Lightning is mainly a UI framework that operates entirely within a <canvas> element in a web browser. It doesn’t care if it’s running on a Smart TV, an embedded STB or a desktop browser.

You will have to look into the specific APIs that are made available to web apps on the platforms you are targeting. You can use any API that is provided to web apps along side your Lightning code.
