    Hello, I used to dictate long notes to myself with my HTC One M8 and it said "Tap to pause" over the circular microphone button. Now, on my Galaxy S8, when I speak push the speech to text button (Swiftkey on both phones) the phone does not type, but instead waits for me to stop speaking and then shows me several versions of what I just typed for me to select the closest one.

    How do I adjust my the S8 so that I can dictate like I did on my old phone?

    Both phones on Verizon.

    By installing the speech-to-text engine the M8 had. Which isn't practical. Just get used to this way of doing it. (Or try Dragon Anywhere - the full version isn't free, but you can install the free version to see if it's what you want. (Nuance, the developer, came out with Dragon Naturally Speaking years ago, and it's still about the best voice to text program there is.)
