Re: Galaxy S3 with 4.1 - Google Now/search text to speech not working
it only talks back to certain commands. from homescreen, long press menu and it should come up with google Now
if you havent yet, it should guide u to set up and activate it. once its activated, google search and voice search will use Now.
ask it "whats the weather?" and it should tell u. ask it the square root of 95 and it should speak the answer. theres only certain things it will speak, otherwise itl show u more useful stuff than siri would tell u and it learns your interests.
make sure you set the language, for example English Generic works best for me so it understands you.
i tend to just type unless its things like math or "what is fifteen UK pounds in US dollars?" which saves time
just set all your "cards" up, sports etc
