    No speech to text option?

    Hello all,

    I just got a Fascinate (Canadian, on the Telus network) and I cannot for the life of me figure out how to turn on the speech to text option that these phones supposedly have. I was all excited to speak my texts to my phone, but I cannot sort it out.

    Is it something to do with being on Telus, or the OS (currently trying to upgrade to 2.2 right now) or something else I'm missing entirely?

    Thanks for any input you can provide!

    Well, the telus fascinate isn't very similar to ours but it should still work the same. Have you long pressed the search soft button? That should bring up voice search. In texts and things, there should be a mic icon on the (android, not swype) keyboard to use speech input.

    if you are using swype texting. the standard input method that the phone comes with. then to use speech to text all you do is touch the little microphone in the bottom right corner of your screen when your looking at the swype keyboard. talk away and then it will analyze what you said then type it for you. no need to go into settings or anything like that its very simple. if its not there then it may be different in canada or something but i am not sure

    ^^cool, I guess the option should be there on the swype keyboard as well. I absolutely hate swype, so I wasn't sure (it's not even on my phone)

    Oh, Canada!

    I have no little microphone option anywhere on a keyboard, and long pressing the search key doesn't do anything. Alas! Silly Canadian phone. If installing 2.2 helps, I will keep you posted.

    Thanks for the suggestions

    Welcome to the forum heatherk! Unfortunately Canada's version of the Galaxy S is a bit different than ours, so it may be difficult to find an answer here right away. An option you may consider would be an app called "Vlingo Voice" free on the Market. I still haven't gotten used to Swype myself but mainly use Vlingo to send SMS, short emails, search, etc. It works perfectly and rarely does it have a problem recognizing what I'm saying. Like most voice apps, the more you use it the better it becomes as it learns difficult words or phrases commonly used.
    Let us know how you make out and if you find an answer in case other Canadian users come across this issue.
    Enjoy your new Fascinate and the forum here!
