  1. We have followed all the steps and the microphones does not appear. We have done it several times. We still don’t have a microphone

  2. My temporary solution is changing the settings under Skype, Touch and Feedback in the Keyboard settings to activate the microphone by pressing the space bar a few seconds

  3. the only mike that appears is to the right of the text being inputed–when i press it a yellow box appears and says – ‘hold to record’


  4. Hallo all,

    I get a keyboard icon on the bottom left. If I press it I get two options: google voice typing and samsung keyboard. In which Samsung Keyboard is selected. If I press voicetyping I get the regular mic option and I can use speech to text. I’m looping the get the mic symbol to show up somewhere.

  5. When using Voice to Text, It always capitalizes the first letter, even in the middle of a sentence. And when I speak punctuation, It types it out.
