    What is wrong the voice to text! I have had this phone for 7 months and still I have to correct nearly every word! If I speak very slow I may get a sentence with only one error. This is an example of what I get when speaking normally... Jasper waking up be and are bargains in any says that... not even sure what this was suppose to say now. I certainly know no one by the name of Jasper & I've never used it in a sentence till now. Help!

    Be patient, the technology continues to advance and will eventually become better on your phone. Transcribing is a processor intense process, and even when it involves a computer, with its more appropriate hardware for the purpose, you'll need a pay-for application to get consistent and reliable results (the free ones typically being 'OK' but not as robust).
    Also, while the current trend is to scorn Google's hoarding of user data, things like the AI (Artificial Intelligence) research now being applied to voice commands, and something like transcribing development, are a direct benefit from all that data-mined voice recording data.
    But even with AI becoming prevalent, there's still an active market for transcribing services that still rely upon people to do transcribing, old school. They sit at a workstation, listen to your audio content with head phones, and type the results using physical keyboards. So some of us are actually impressed that transcribing on a smartphone is even a 'thing' at this point.

    Within the last two weeks. I have started having. Issues with my talk-to-text as well. It used to work fine on my Note 8, but when I switched to the Note 10 plus it did not seem to work quite as well. I changed over to the Google Voice to Text engine like I had on the other phone. And it was working better. But then within the last 2 weeks I'm guessing during an update. It has started randomly punctuating and adding capital letters. Even worse than it did before. I am actually doing this with talk to text. Without asking for any punctuation at all, so that someone can see What it looks like? It is very frustrating. Because I use my talk-to-text extensively. When I'm in my car for safety reasons. And I feel like I am correcting it and taking longer to correct it then I would have taken just to type it out by hand. I have already spoken with my Verizon tech coach. Who suggested clearing the cache? In my app which I did and I also turned off automatic punctuation and capitalization and it is still doing it.
