Google announced today a new Chrome experiment that looks quite fun. It is a word game that incorporates your speech - not typing. The game is a "build a tower" game that has you spell words. You say each letter and upon spelling the word correctly, it adds a level to your tower. If you are logged into Chrome with your Google account, it will save your game as well as post your score. I have not played long (thus not a very high tower yet!) but I anticipate this to be a fun game to enhance anyone learning English as well as a time killer for others. So open Chrome and head on over to SpellUp. Don't forget to allow access to your microphone!
