    Hello!

    Suddenly this week (1/29/16), when using voice-to-text in android messenger, the app no longer offers alternative similar-sounding guesses when I tap on a recognized word. E.g. "there" for "their", etc?

    I used to be able to tap on a word that was recognized, and see alternatives. Now all it does is offer to copy the word. I can still dismiss voice recognition and see alternative words that are *spelled* similarly, but not ones that *sound* similar.

    This is surprisingly inconvenient. Can someone offer advice?

    Thanks, much appreciated!

    I just had this start with my note 4 two weeks ago. No solution, sorry but hope this bumps the thread.

    Welcome to Android Central!

    I think you have to tap in a certain spot now, like at the end of the word to get it to pop up.
