Can't access my keyboard on HTC One -- voice only

I'm having a major problem with my (8 day old) HTC One and I wonder if anyone can help me. I turned it off last night for a movie and turned it back on a couple hours later -- only to find I could not access my keyboard in text or email. Whenever I try to send a text the "tap to speak" voice input option is all that comes up. I can't seem to access the keyboard by tapping the "keyboard" icon to the left of the mic. I tried disabling Google Voice Input but can't seem to make that work.

I have SwiftKey installed as the keyboard and turning it on or off doesn't seem to help.

I used an iPhone for three years and never had problems like this... I was so excited to switch to an android but am slowly regretting my decision, because now I more or less cannot use my smartphone without my keyboard. How can I get my keyboard back? Please help!

Have you tried going to the notification area to select a different keyboard? Sometimes this happens when I restart my phone, but when I go up there and select SwiftKey again, all is good.

I wonder if you have another app installed that's forcing the voice input?

Have you tried to restart the phone? Press and hold power button then select "restart" from menu.

I also see that there is a keyboard icon in your notification bar at the top. You could pull the notification bar down and see if the default keyboard input is set to voice instead of one of the actual keyboards.

PLEASE HELP :)

I am having the same issue except my phone is on the lock screen with a 4 digit pin to unlock it.

I can't access settings or the app drawer and restarting it the phone still needs the pin. I have 'said' the pin, 'said' it followed by 'enter' or 'return' but it's not working.

The phone also turned off my ringer so any help would be greatly appreciated!!

it happened to me. after hours browsing all over the internet, forums and google but none of them helped. finally i figured it out: go to setting > language and keyboard > google voice typing settings > offline speech recognition. go ahead and download the English package (22MB). enjoy! :)

Same thing happened to me on the htc m8 and i just went to the settings and factory reset the phone from there and that seemed to do the trick just fine.
