    Default Speech to text will not capitalize first word of a sentence

    Suddenly (no updates were done that I know of) it will no longer capitalize the first letter of a sentence. Keyboard does but not speech to text. Version is 4.1.2. I don't see anything in the settings to fix this. Does anyone have any ideas? Very annoying. Any help is appreciated.

    It is whatever you get stock when you hit the microphone button. Pretty sure that is Google but forgive me as I am not positive. I know I haven't added anything to have speech to text.

    This is using speech to text. do sentences begin with a capital letter? you be the judge.

    Well, I see what you're saying - I'll have to dig around to see if there's a setting that we're missing.

    Has anyone figured out anything about this yet? I have noticed it also and can't seem to get my capitalization back.

    I wonder if it has anything to do with the keyboard in use? this is using the Samsung keyboard. Well I guess that's not it. perhaps it has something to do with how long you wait before saying the next sentence? nope that's not it.
    Looks like only new paragraphs get capitalized.

    I've noticed it as well. I'm also having trouble getting speech to text to work at all in the default text app. It just doesn't want to turn on.

    I just posted this elsewhere, but I thought it might be worth mentioning it again. I turned off both my Wi-Fi and carrier data so that my phone was forced to use the offline speech recognition. It worked flawlessly. As soon as I used either Wi-Fi or my carrier again, it fails to capitalize the first word. To me that points to something on Google's side is going awry as the voice recognition is chewing on the input. I contacted them today but go no where with the level 1 rep. Does anyone know of a good way to reach someone at Google that might take an interest?

    Mine did that for awhile. Kill all apps and then try again and it will work.

    After searching and searching, I found a way to contact the Google developers. Here's a link to a form that you can fill out. I am hoping I will get a response. Maybe if all of us submit the same issue, they will fix it. Fingers crossed because it's driving me crazy. It's so frustrating when something works fine one day and then not the next and I didn't change anything. Grrrrr!

    Well, that was a bust. That's not even correct, right? It is a Google product, at least I thought it was.

    I wish I could remember what it says, but when it won't work, like the poster above stated, it says something in the screen about 'Google *something* isn't available right now or something like that. If anyone knows what it says, please chime in so I can tell the Google person that it IS their product.

    My auto-capitalization starting working again late yesterday and I didn't do a thing. So I'm guessing that Google finally took care of whatever went wrong around July 11th or 12th when it first broke. I hope it stays working...

    Alrighty! I hadn't used it today and voila! It is working again. I think it's quite a scary thought that they fixed it and we didn't have to do anything to make it work again without some sort of update. Hmmmm. Oh, well. I am happy nonetheless! Thank you everyone for posting and trying to figure this out. Much appreciated!

    Default is Google voice recognition and with it the automatic space and first letter Caps after saying "period" can both go away if you do not have Sync enabled in the status bar.
