Voice-to-Text poor functionality on Galaxy S20
Not sure if this is a SwiftKey problem or a Messages problem or a Google problem but here it goes.......
I just got this Galaxy S20. On my previous phone (Galaxy S9), when I hit the little "microphone" button on my SwiftKey keyboard to do voice to text when using the Messages App for texting, I would simply start talking and the words I was creating by voice would populate the text field in Messages. I could easily see the words as I spoke. After I was done taking, I'd just hit the send button and I was good to go.
With this S20, when I hit the little microphone button on SwiftKey, a window pops up. It is super annoying for a few reasons. One, that stupid grey box that says "Your audio Will be sent....." blocks the first several words that I am speaking, so I can't see that the text to words is translating correctly. Second, if I stop talking for around a second, the voice to text assumes I'm done speaking and closes, preventing me from adding more words if I hesitate to complete a thought. Third and worst of all, after I'm done talking the words I just spoke don't transfer to the text field in Messages. If I tap the empty text field in messages, SOMETIMES the words I just spoke suddenly appear in the text field- maybe 50% of the time. Supper annoying as half the time I have to repeat the whole voice-to-text process or revert to typing.
On my S9, when I hit the microphone button, I got a different pop-up that didn't block my words as they were spoken, and my words simply transferred directly to the text field in Messages, where I could clearly see them and simply hit "send" when done speaking.
When I use Facebook Messenger and do voice-to-text, I still get the pop up box with the annoying grey "Your audio will be sent......" blocking my words, but when I'm done speaking, at least my words transfer into the empty text box automatically and edit/send as required.
Anyone else having this problem? I'd post the pictures of the pop up windows but I don't see a way to do that with this forum.
