Support Request: Speech Recognition not available on Chromium


We are using a Windows Site Kiosk with the Chromium browser.
We need to open a webpage using the Speech Recongition API:

The page works fine in Chrome browser on the same machine, however in Site Kiosk, the Speech Recongition API is not available.
When tested on multiple sites, the microphone access works fine, the only issue seems to be the recognition API which does not work on any webpage we tried.

Can you advise us how to turn the support on?

This is caused by the fact that the corresponding API keys are not integrated into the Chromium CEF engine used by SiteKiosk.
SiteKiosk 9.7.5232 uses Chromium 76.0.3809.132 Windows 32 Bit. Here you can find the corresponding Chromium test application for download (unzip 2x and run the cefclient.exe in the "Release" folder) which is currently used in SiteKiosk 9.7.5232 (Chromium 76.0.3809.132 Windows 32 Bit):

If this speech recognition API is required, you can test if it works by adding the appropriate API key yourself.
See: “Providing Keys at Runtime” at this page

This page explains it a little easier.:

Thanks for your advice, I will try the proposed solution and will see if this is possible in the derivative Chromium browser.
