    Is there a way to do speech to text in any app so you dont have to use text input?

    Handcent does what you're looking for. It's for text messages and works if you speak slowly.

    I haven't seen a "whole-phone" text to speech option yet. Vlingo on the BB was pretty awesome...wish they would make an android release.

    There is also an app called Voice Text if you don't want to use Handcent, though why anybody wouldn't want to use Handcent is beyond me. :)

    I tried to use handcent and it is saying "recognizer not present" I tried downloading TTS library and still nothing. Is there a trick?
