Touch-screen keyboards can be slow, especially on phones with small screens. To enter text more naturally, you can use your phone or tablet’s voice dictation feature. Just speak — punctuation included — and your device will convert what you say to text.
I like swipe-based keyboards better. Voice control doesn't go well with me. iOS is better in this regard. At least it didn't convert “mat” to “mop” like Droid did...
For non english user, I think the function is not ready. Need to improve a lot
iOS voice dictation works really well in other languages.
Siri sucks. It was always misinterpreting what I spoke. Android is much better in that regard because it actually improves the interpretation the more you use it. Siri seemed to get worse every time I used it. I'm so glad I left iPhone for Android.
My phone is running android 4.0.4 and I do not see the microphone icon on the onscreen keypad.
I have a new Verizon phone that is a Samsung 3 something
(You can tell I don't know much about this stuff) It has this feature on it.
I have had retina-peal surgery on both eyes which left me unable to read unless I close my left eye.
I was shown how to slide around the keyboard and it is fascinating. But it is difficult for me to use the message thing. The dictation feature works wonders for the handicapped. . . that and the spell correction feature.
I am not fretting about my condition; I could be blind by now.
I wonder if it costs extra if I use it. Does anyone know?
