Giles is correct, in that free-form audio input would be used well.

As of HTML 4, <input type="file" accept="audio/*"> was supposed to work.

So far none of the major borwsers have implemented this.  Mozilla seems 
to be the closest, but who knows what Microsoft and Opera have up their
sleves.

The advocacy is at:  http://www.bovik.org/devup/tbl-devup.txt

The hints are around:
