Can Speech Pad works offline?
No, Speech Pad uses Google back-end servers to provide speech recognition.
This is my first visit - I press "Start recording" and nothing happened!
When you press this button first time, Chrome shows the small popup:

allowing to use microphone

Press "Allow" button here, and then you could use microphone on the Speechpad.pw site.
I press "Start recording" and speak to the microphone but I can not see my speech.
Look at the "Confidence level" field - it shows the last error if such error exists.

showing errors

For example "error: no speech" appears if the microphone does not works in Chrome, "error: networks" - when there is not internet connection, "error: blocked" - when you have pressed the "Block" button (see the previous question).
See Speech input errors for mor information.
