    When I use the speech to text option on the keyboard, it isn't typing the correct words. My Galaxy S9+ was great at this, rarely needing correcting, now with my S20 it is rarely correct!

    Another issue I have, which didn't happen on my S9+, is pocket dialling! Everything is disabled that is recommended when I googled the issue.
    ie. Lift to wake - disabled, Double tap to wake - disabled, Accidental touch protection -enabled, Touch sensitivity - disabled

    Any suggestions to correct either of these issues gratefully received, thank you

    I have the Galaxy S20 5G Model SM-G981B/DS with all updates installed

    Are you using Google text to speech or Samsung? Google's I prefer.

    You can change the bottom icon so it doesnt display phone icon , in settings >lock screen>app short cuts can turn off or change the app

    Hi @mustang7757
    I'm not sure why my question showed as a guest as I had joined before I posted my question.
    My phone is set to Google's Text to speech Engine, however it is the speech to text that I am not happy with, and the only "training" I can find asks me to just say "Hey Google" and "Ok Google", unless I m not looking in the right place (Settings-Language and input-On-screen keyboard-Google voice typing- Voice Match)
    I'll try your suggestion to remove the phone icon from my lock screen, although again, that wasn't a problem on my S9+.
    Thank you for your help

    Hi and thank you for the welcome and for changing me to owner of the thread.

    Following your suggestion to try Google Gboard, I went into "Manage keyboards" to see if I could add/enable it there and noticed that both Google voice typing and Samsung voice input were enabled. I disabled the Samsung voice input and tried a test message and it typed an almost perfect version of what I had said, just one word needed correcting

    So thank you!! Although I didn't use your suggestion to get Google Gboard (although I will look at that) it did lead me to (hopefully) finding the cause of the problem.
