A bit better, yet short description [1]:

interface MediaStreamRecognizer
   attribute MediaStream input;

SpeechInputRequest implements MediaStreamRecognizer;

If the user agent supports a MediaStream API, it may expose input
attribute in SpeechInputRequest objects. Initial value for the attribute
is null.

When input attribute is null, SpeechInputRequest object should use the
data from the default microphone as its input. If input attribute is
non-null, SpeechInputRequest object should read the data from the stream.


[1] Is it not yet clear which MediaStream API to use.
It can be for example something WebRTC WG defines
or probably a merge of all those three.
