Enter Text by Voice

Try speaking the words to enter them in most text fields that let you use the touch input keyboard.

  1. Tap an area where you want to enter text.
  2. On the onscreen keyboard, touch and hold voice key.
  3. When you see the microphone button and the words "Speak now", say the words you want to enter.

Tip: To set the voice input language, tap settings icon > Languages. You can choose one or more languages. Available languages depend on the voice input languages supported by Google.

  1. If a word doesn’t match what you’ve spoken and it’s underlined, tap the underlined word to delete it or to see more choices.
  2. Enter punctuation marks by saying the name (for example, say "comma").
