Default Voice recognition on SMS only working on WIFI

Hello All

I have finally given up iPhone for an Android phone - Galaxy S3 and am loving it so far but there is one issue that drives me mad.

On my iPhone I used to always dictate txt messages (sms) to it and it was pretty good.. The Galaxy has a little mic icon on the keyboard and I can speak to it then and it is very good better than the iPhone recognition actually.

But it only works on WIFI ! as soon as I turn the wifi off in my phone it just says CXonnection Error and thats it. Im not talking about the S Voice here only the speech - to - text recognition but the interface looks very similar so it probably is using the same API. This is useless to me, I usually want to dictate when I'm in a shop and need to do it quickly or when I drive (and no I don't want to use SVoice )

Can someone confirm if it's only meant to work on WIFI and are you having the same problem? Maybe it's just my phone ? Maybe someone knows the solution ? I'm on T-Mobile UK.

Regards

Nini

i don't know the answer, sounds like a bug to me. It should work via 3G also. Perhaps not if you have a really poor data connection but if you've tried with a good 3G signal then not sure.

Are you one Jelly Bean? If you are then you can download an offline language pack in the settings of google now. If you get this then will it allow you to dictate? As far as I know this should work even in airplane mode. Not the full soultion to your problem but could help till you get it fixed

I'm having the same problem here on AT&T as well. Works fine while using WiFi but once I switch back to 4G/LTE it doesn't work, just shows connection problem/error. Been searching the web for hours, still can't iron out a way to correct the problem. The strangest part is that everything else works while using the 4G/LTE data, Google search voice, S voice, all apps, etc... Just not the dang sms!!!

Okay... I figured out what was wrong with my text to talk, I'm not sure if what I did will help you or anyone else who reads this but I'll share it anyways.

Considering that I despise all things background data I stopped the background data for my msg app and the Google/Samsung engines that's used for voice recognition on SMS to only use background data when connected to WiFi.

All I did to correct this problem was to go to Settings--->Data Usage--->select apps. After that I just made sure all apps allowed background data on both WiFi and data.

Hopefully this will help....

Cheers
