    I find it difficult to believe that speech to text is not standard on this new phone. I'd rather not have to install Vlingo to get a "Mic" key on my keyboard. Any suggestions out there. I have rooted it I tried installing Voice.apk but that doesnt do what I want.

    Thanks in advance

    I believe it is native to the os, you just have to download tts from the market.

    It took me 3 freakin hours but finally I figured it out. You must download google voice search and also the gingerbread keyboard. The free one works fine.

    1) download gingerbread keyboard off market
    2) go to general phone settings, keyboard, make sure it is enabled
    3) open up message, long press on the text input area, select input method, select gingerbread keyboard. You will not get a black keyboard with the mic present.

    what did you use to root it? I have a Gzone as well and am having difficulty with the root process.

    Thanks, John

    Mine works with google voice and swift x keyboard.

    My phone is also rooted which may have something to do with it.

    Has anyone tried installing the full version of the flex T9 keyboard? That supposedly provides the voice control and keeps the swipe feature that is already part of the keyboard?

  17. Hey guys, I installed Voice Search and can't seem to get it to work. I tried doing it just like the video showed when I say "Text to" it will open a texting screen but always puts the recipient into the message. I have yet to get it to fill in the recipient.

    Any suggestions?

    I put in Voice Search and am using it with the paid version of Better Keyboard 8. Speak clearly and it works great.

    Do a search in the apps market for keyboards. Choose the free app for gingerbread keyboard. after install enable it in your languages and keyboards settings. go to your normal messaging program. long press on the type box. choose input method. choose gingerbread keyboard. when that is done you will get the black keyboard with the mic to press and voice text.

    and thanks to all other posts. i was about to start testing the durability of this phone against walls.

    I'm really getting fed up with the google voive to text. If there is any sort of noise in the area besides my voice it either doesn't work, or if it does which is rare, it inputs words that do not make any sense. Not to mention i cant even use it in my truck with the windows rolled up, radio off, and vent closed. lame lame lame.

    anyone else have this problem?

    Google voice works very well on my commando. I thought it was great on my old droid also.

    Nuance on the other hand ships with the commando and is at the top of the "worthless apps i plan to delete" list when I finally root.

    I have read the threads and I have got my google assisted talk to text to work....kinda. It does not recognize all the names in my contacts. It does not work while driving, the time I want it to work the most. It is unable to detect my voice. I have downloaded the gingerbread thing and the google voice search. The google app allows me to talk and text but it doesn't work well unless I am inside a building and it is very quite. Can anyone please help me? I would very much like to be able to talk-to-text effectively. Please detail out steps thoroughly.

    Exact same problem. Works perfectly while not in the car, not at all while in the car. I primarily want it to work for the navigation app. The volume of my voice and the distance I hold the phone from my mouth does not seem to make any difference: if I am in the car and the car is running: it does not pick up my voice.

    If you download Go Keyboard and set it up there is a mic option built into it. Works awesome :)

    The Flex T9 keyboard is on sale this week on Amazon. That is the full version of the one the phone came with. It has the speech built in and some other features. I d/l it today, and it works great.
