Captivate Speech-To-Text Not Working
When I attempt to use the speech-to-text feature on the stock messaging app on my Captivate, it doesn't ever seem to work. I always try it, saying the worlds slow and understandable, it then says "Working...", but every time after that, it gives me "Connection error".

I'm not sure why it's not working anymore; it worked a few months ago when I tried it and I thought it was the neatest thing. Am I doing something wrong?

Since your phone is saying connection failed, that implies that a data connection is needed.  Is your phone connected to Wi-fi when it works, but not connected to Wi-fi when it doesn't work?  If I'm not mistaken, the speech-to-text engine runs through Google some kind of way.  So a data connection would be needed for that.

 

If this isn't the case, I'm afraid that I won't be much help to you.  I feel bad.  I wanted to help you WB!

I'm digging back in my memory here, so please bear with me.  Which keyboard are you using when you try the speech-to-text?  Swype, Samsung, or Android?  Or are you trying to do speech-to-text another way?

I am using the the stock Samsung keyboard, which is what I prefer. I was also using the same keyboard when I was able to use the feature before, so I'm not really sure why I'm having a problem, now...

Well, I turn off my phone on a nightly basis. And every time I try to use speech-to-text, it just does not work...even if I turn the phone off and then right back on afterwards.

Now that I think about it, the time I used it when it actually did work, I probably had Wi-Fi turned on. When I try it other times, I am getting a 3G signal, but it probably still doesn't work because I'm using my Captivate on a GoPhone plan.

I will try it when I get home later on tonight and see if a Wi-Fi connection does the trick. Even if it still doesn't work, I appreciate your help! Smiley Happy

You're welcome!  I'm glad that it worked for you.  I was out of ideas and it just hit me, that Siri has to connect to a server to work on iPhones.  Then I remembered that anytime that I use speech-to-text on an Android phone, it connects first, then it's ready to go.
