It requires network access to use. If my network is sketchy, it won't work. I also talk slow and try to articulate, otherwise the results are comical, or frustrating....

No, mfreeland, Google Voice to Text does NOT require network access to use. (Unless there's something magically different between my phone and yours. Mine's a Galaxy S3. Yours?)

I do not have a dataplan.......ergo, no internet connection unless I'm using wi-fi..............either at home or in Macdonalds, etc...............but................

MY GOOGLE VOICE TO TEXT WORKS FINE DICTATING TEXT MESSAGES WHILE DRIVING DOWN THE HIGHWAY.........SO, you stand corrected.

Voice to text does NOT require network access! (Let's stop THAT rumour right here and now!)
