    I have been using SwiftKey for three months now. I installed it from a desire to circumvent the Google Voice to Text which now means running Google Assistant on your phone. I just want a basic Speech to Text machine. Not something that is going to update the me on the weather, force my phone to find nearby WiFi (even if I turn it off), often read into my location to identify patterns of where I have been and let me know what is around me.

    I realize some of the above sounds like issues with location services. Let me just say that the two weeks that my phone did not have Google Assistant, it never ran better! From there I tried and tried to find another way to do voice to text. There was none. So, regrettably installed it and now run SwiftKey with Google Voice to Text.

    My question is that if Microsoft's Edge has it's own voice option, why not the independence for SwiftKey?

    Same issue: Google Voice to Text has gone "bonkers!"  It Capitalizes words that are never capitalized except at the beginning of a sentence.  It offers three selections on a word choice with the middle one sometimes not chosen.  It puts words in the sentence that make no sense in the sentence (AI needs help) and quite often uses the most bizarre choice when the common sense word fits perfectly.

    SwiftKey is great; however, as I use voice to text more and more, I need more than 85% accuracy - it takes me longer to fix what Google voice to text screws up than it would take me to type it in the first place.

    Are you saying that SwiftKey now has it's own voice assistant? All that capitalization stuff with GA has improved from subsequent updates. Also a data connection makes a big difference for voice typing accuracy with GA. I still would like to get away from it in order to improve the phone's performance and battery life. Yet, I cannot seem to live without voice typing.
