    I use talk to text all the time. Now all of a sudden it's just putting in periods in the middle of my sentences. Usually I would have to say to add one now It's just putting them wherever.

    I had to remove three or four of them from what I just posted above. Is anyone else having any issues I've already restarted my phone? Thanks.

    I'm having the exact same problem! I have tried restarting and then going to keyboard settings and general settings and nothing fixes this problem! Hope a solution is found quickly... I am using google voice to text, but I have also tried using Samsung and Swiftkey. When using either of those two it automatically switches me back to google voice to text when I touch the mic key...

    How do I uninstall just the latest update? The only option it gives me is to uninstall updates back to factory version?

    I tried that but I couldn't get to a place that would let me delete just the last update. My only option was to force stop the app or delete all updates to factory. My phone is a note 9.

    Okay, so yes, you want to delete all updates on the Google app. But you also need to go to the play store and turn off auto updates. I skipped that step yesterday and now the Almighty Goog has restored the update and taken away my option to delete the updates.

    I'm highly peeved and looking for alternatives to using the Google speech to text engine. So far I haven't had any luck. Any ideas?

    Thanks mustang. My settings button returned and I was able to revert to the factory version.

    I was completely unsuccessful in finding an alternative. Typically, I have only a slight bit of cynicism, conspiracy theorist, paranoia in regard to being monitored by technology, but with Android, there are so many 3rd party applications for so many things. I can't help but think they don't allow competitive STT engines because Google doesn't want to lose out on the info that is collected.

    Yeah you might be right about Google, didn't see any alternatives.

    Oh, that's weird. I didn't get any notifications that anyone had replied. Sorry!

    So did the suggestion someone posted did it work? Oh wow now it's putting in "?" before I even say to and in the middle of sentences. Then I have to go back and change the capital letters that it leaves afterwards. What a pain in the you-know-what.

    So were you having the same problem with punctuation just going into the middle of sentences? Were you successful on having it stop? Thanks.

    Weird so far today out of the blue my talk-to-text seems to be working correctly. I did look at my updates and it seems SwiftKey did an update less than an hour ago but I've been using my phone for about 3 hours with no issues. Not sure if it's Google or a SwiftKey that is activating my talk-to-text. It looked like both of them were marked for usage. I'm just so glad it's back working correctly! I have not received any updates on security patches still on December 1st and have not received Android 10.
