There are some useful parameters which we can use in the Speech Pad query string. The most importants are: vid (1 — compact view), autostart (1 — autostart), chkbufer (1 — Transfer to clipboard is checked ), pagelang (speech recognition language code), chkbeep (turn off sounds checkbox setting), chkinteg (turn on integration mode).
This link will start voice notepad in the compact view with the checked Transfer to clipboard options and also will start speech recognition in the US English language (you must previously install the Chrome Speech Pad extension to use transfer to clipboard feature).
Another example – we can use https://speechpad.pw/?autostart=1&chkinteg=1&pagelang=en-US to start Speech Pad in the integration mode (in this case additional module must be activated previously).
The nonzero values of the parameters in the query string will have precedence over the default values and yet user account setting in the voice notebook.
After opening Speechpad with parameters we can use Chrome menu: More Tools->Add to taskbar to create the shortcut for starting Speech Pad with our parameters in the future. This shortcut will use Chrome browser even if the default browser would not be Chrome. You can force Chrome shortcuts to open Speechpad as a window in the Apps tab or simply by setting Open as window checkbox.
Sometimes it is convenience to set the voice notebook’s window on top of the other windows. This setting can help in this task for windows OS. Linux OS allows setting windows on top by the OS native tools.
