    If you use the xda keyboard (and a few others) then yes. IIRC, the stock 2.1 keyboard does not have the mic.

    You can speak your text if you use Handcent on the Hero, I've used it and if you speak clearly, it's pretty accurate.

    Not for text, if you are using Handcent. If you are running 2.X there are other keyboards that give you that feature in the keyboard so you can use it on any text input.
    Good Luck!

    When we got updated to 2.1 they left out the keyboard that came on most other phones with 2.1. Because 2.1. is capable of doing the speech to text task all you need to do is install the keyboard that was left out, i.e. the htc keyboard that has the mic button.

    Follow the link here for a download and then also follow the instructions posted by the 12th poster at the link.

    I did it and it works great!

    Awesome! Popularthinks, I was able to get the speech to text button on my keyboard because of the directions you linked to! Works like a charm!
