Strange Issue with Google Voice Typing
I've had this phone for about a month and I've only noticed this problem within the last couple of days.
I hate typing on the screen with my fingers/thumbs so I rely on Google Voice Input quite a lot when sending text messages. I noticed something annoying happening now.
As you may know, the Google voice input will type your words in as you speak them. I have noticed that while it listens to me, often it will NOT enter the last thing I say.
For example, if I say:
"This sentence is just a test"
...it will only enter:
"This sentence is just a"
At this point, I have two options. I can hit 'send' or I can press the red microphone icon to stop listening. If I press send, it will send the unfinished message, and then it will retype the entire message (including the previously omitted portion) again into the compose box, after which I must delete it. If I press the red icon to stop listening, only then will it append the end of my message to the text.
While typing this post, I tested this a bit more and found another possible outcome. This one seems quite consistent, actually...
While the phone is listening and I am speaking, it will type the words out. Sometimes it will enter all of the words properly, so that's good. However, it seems that when the phone stops listening, it will place the entire message into the compose box. If I haven't pressed 'send' yet, this means nothing, but if I have pressed 'send' already, then it means a duplicate of the message will be retyped into the compose box and I have to delete it.
I just did a test and the results are ridiculous. I'll tell you what I spoke into the phone and what the results where. I'll put [SEND] for when I sent the message:
"I want to try something now" [SEND]
"and see if it actually works" [SEND]
(after the last [SEND] it placed more text in the compose box so I sent one last time)
Message 1: "I want to try something"
Message 2: "I want to try something now and see if it actually"
Message 3: "and see if it actually"
I hope I explained this well enough that you understand what's going on and maybe we can fix it.
