Google speech to text not working correctly

I have a Samsung Galaxy Centura and I'm using Go SMS Pro and SwiftKey.

Starting today, when I try to text using the voice to text feature, every time I start a new sentence, the previous sentence disappears. This has never happened to me before. I tried repeatedly, to the point I was cursing, and now it is also blocking out offensive words also. I went to Language and Input > Google Voice Typing and made sure Block offensive words is not checked.

I tried the stock messaging app and I'm still having both problems. Help would be very much appreciated. Thanks.

Re: Google speech to text not working correctly

I wish I could say that I have the answer to your issue but can only say that I have duplicated the event that has happened to you. HTC Vivid. One common thread between our issues that seem interesting is that we both installed Go SMS Pro. I liked it for a while until my voice to text started acting up. Now it erases the previous text content with in that single text container.

Re: Google speech to text not working correctly

I am having a similar issue with my Galaxy S3 starting today. I don't have those apps. The text-to-speech has the same problem when I use any "typing input" app. Seems like they pushed some update down which is problematic. I am not happy about this.

Erases the line which is a problem you are having. Lots of stars for curse words but I didn't try that before.

Re: Google speech to text not working correctly

i've done some more research and it seems that this is affecting more and more people. Just started yesterday for most and no one knows why. If anyone has any ideas, I'd be curious to hear them. I did a fresh flash and still had the problem (BUT I did do an app restore and didn't test before). Will probably re-flash tonight for other reasons and test before restore . .

Re: Google speech to text not working correctly

This is happening to me as well. I've never posted on this or any other forum before. I used to love this feature on my Galaxy S3 now it's such a nuisance. I hope this gets resolved!

Re: Google speech to text not working correctly

So frustrating. I have had this same problem for about a week. Every single text I send by -speech to text, it erases. I do not type the messages. Basically I am incapable.
About a week ago it started deleting previous sentences or phrases and only leaving the most recent phrase you spoke minus the last word. Also there are long delays where text does not appear at all after spoken or delayed by over 30 seconds, screen times out, or error no connection appears. I called Virgin Mobile, friends. I changed every setting I had for texting programs. I downloaded and tested about 8 different keyboards and tested them all. If I use Google speech to text with the red circle around the microphone it erases it all, chops it up!! Argh! But I use other keyboards which use the "default" speech to text option they do get it mostly right but you cannot see the text coming out until you are done speaking.
I forgot to mention that the speech to text does not work in dictating emails also. It also erases your sentences.
I have a samsung galaxy reverb using it on Virgin Mobile.
Can someone tell me how and why this started happening and how to fix it, who to call, what change to look for?

Re: Google speech to text not working correctly

Same boat and we're not alone. tried posting on a google android developers forum but was told not right place and to contact manufacturer. Well, this is not phone specific (across board HTC, Samsung and Motorola) so it is a Google problem. I've been trying to find the most recent update and have found nothing except the new maps program. I have on idea whether that could cause the issue, but I am going to roll back to the old one and see if that helps.

Re: Google speech to text not working correctly

I would like this fixed and I am not familiar where to post on other sites to get attention to this issue..
I found the link mentioned above and copied my post from here to that forum just to give us some numbers and visibility.

Re: Google speech to text not working correctly

I too am having this problem. It started a week ago after I updated Google Maps which probably has nothing to do with it. That update removed my Caltrans traffic app and the shortcut for Google Maps. However, right after that, I noticed my voice to text not working properly. It is sluggish when speaking, starts to pause after my last word and then deletes everything when I try to finish the text manually. What is going on???????
By the way, my phone is an HTC Evo Design 4G

Re: Google speech to text not working correctly

I just noticed that Google Talk changed to Hangouts recently. Does anyone else have that installed? Wondering if that might be the cause. This isn't getting that much attention from what I can tell, which is a shame because I do at least 3/4 of my texts and email using this feature. Really a pain . . .

Re: Google speech to text not working correctly

I too am having this problem - I thought it was just my phone acting up. I just uninstalled Hangouts, will see if that helps anything.

Re: Google speech to text not working correctly

Oh well, so much for that idea. No, it didn't help. This is really annoying. I have to use either the Swype keyboard or the SwiftKey keyboard (trial) I just downloaded.
