    The translations are horrible. I will say a sentence like a robot hoping it will pick it up clearly and it spits out something completely different. What's shown kind of ryhmes but I am speaking clearly into the phone.

    It was perfect on my S6, but I've always noticed this difference since I switched to the S7.

    Am I alone?

    Grrr, I'm using it in a text exchange as we speak and I'm losing my mind. Maybe Google doesn't recognize NY accents.

    I kidding! But there's no way to train it, right? Back on the older models, you were able to adapt the service to your voice (saying, "The quick brown fox......)

    It sucks bug time. It barely recognises any word. I disabled it and stuck to Google voice.

    What are you using? Crappy s-voice or Google which has the best voice recognition?

    I use the default service that's on the keyboard, which I believe is Google, because it says Google as I'm speaking.

    Yes, it is Google voice typing

    Just did that by voice and worked perfectly. Must be the new yorker accent.

    Almost letter perfect almost every time for me. I chose option long ago to let Google learn my voice.

    I was having the exact same problem with my new Note 8. The voice texting was absolutely awful, and I agree with so many of the posts above. But I learned that I needed to make Google Voice or Google keyboard the default, and then I needed to go in and make that permanent. Otherwise, it's trying to use Bixby, and Bixby is not ready for Primetime yet, by any means. And it will keep reverting to Bixby if you don't make Google Voice permanent. I just typed this post using Google Voice, and did not have to change a single thing.

    I think the voice recognition is terrible, too. It never gets two sentences correct and barely ever one. It types in UNwords that are not even words. (As in, it makes up words.) It is so cumbersome to correct with the keyboard, too. My S6 allowed me to click on the incorrect word and it would give me legitimate options. Most always the intended word was one of the choices. What happened? Is Google sabotaging Android? Bixby is annoying, too.

    You are not alone I have had many problems with this. It even gets worse when you try to correct the auto spell mistakes full words disappear..

    I turned off predictive text and Samsung voice input. It then defaulted to Google voice input for my keyboard when I talk to text. Go to your settings, click General management, click language and input, click on-screen keyboard, click manage keyboards, and then unselect Samsung voice input. The Google voice input is 95% more efficient than the Samsung voice input. It also is a lot easier to correct a word simply by clicking the word and it gives you predictive other words to choose from. Without doing the change your default program that diagnosis your talk-to-text is Samsung which does not learn from mistakes.
