    I installed Handcent SMS, works fine, except I see no option for speech-to-text when creating new txt msg or replying to received msg. When long pressing an input field, my only options are for keyboard selection - Android keyboard or Handcent keyboard. No option for voice/speech to text input. No microphone icon anywhere on Handcent app screen.

    Installed TTS extended as suggested on handcent.com website - no change.

    What am I missing?

    Long-holding the Droid's search icon works for me :D

    When composing or replying, push the menu soft key, the screen that pops up will have the microphone on it.

    Might be me but I tend to have marbles in my mouth when i talk. With that being said does this app have a voice training feature? Curious because it has misinterpreted what i said only for me to go back and retype and after a week the errors become less and less like it's learning your voice.

    I don't think it does, it would be nice if they added it. I rarely can use it without having to go back and retype things (and some of the things it comes up with crack me up!!!) :D , but it does come in handy if my hubby texts me in the car with something semi-important. I can kind of text back...with very short phrases, lol.

    As long as it knows any correction you make AFTER is programmed incase you say that again.

    I think the learning feature would definately come in handy as it can be done however the size of database to use would be the only concern.
