    So I've noticed the Galaxy S phones have Swype Keyboards without the microphone icon, meaning you can't launch speech2text from the keyboard. However on the DroidX, the keyboard looks identical, but it does have the mic.

    Can we download a new version of swype that has this enabled. I like swype but want to be able to talk to my phone ;-)

    bump?
    Seems like this should be a simple question to answer. Why does DroidX's swype have the mic button while GalaxyS doesn't?

    Thanks everyone!

    You can just switch really quick to the anroid keyboard and switch back.. but the microphone on the swype keyboard would be an easier solution if anyone has it?

    Edit... I just noticed if your in the swype keboard and hit menu button (far left button), there is a speak button. As I said it would still be better on the actual keyboard if anyone knows of a way?

    It's been covered here a few different times over the last few days. Here's any example:

    http://androidforums.com/samsung-ca...e-ears-listen-just-dont-make-me-type-out.html

    Search this forum for "swype" and several results will turn up. Essentially, the stock swype keyboard doesn't have the mic button for whatever reason. For now at least, you'll have to choose between swype or the stock android (or another) keyboard with mic button.

    When I hit that bottom left button on Swype, all I get is an annoying Tips window.

    Sorry, I am new to smartphones so i don't know the real name of the button, but it is one of the 4 buttons on the samasung that are always there. Like the back and menu button. Its the button to the far left at the very bottom of the phone.
