Voice to text through bluetooth headset?
I have a new Droid 2 running 2.3 and a Bluetooth headset (Samsung HM3500).
Speech-to-text (of the sort activated by pushing the microphone button in any text-input field) does not work through the Bluetooth headset.
Oddly, after initially booting up the phone, it works through the built-in microphone. I then activate and pair my headset. Voice recognition doesn't work through the headset (or through the built-in mic). I then disable bluetooth, turn off the headset. Voice recognition continues not to work!
I know the headset works. And when I press the headset button, it enters "voice command" mode where it asks me to "say a command." This mode works over the Bluetooth headset!
Also, I tested this behavior in the Voice Recognizer of ApiDemos, and its also broken in the way described above.
