View Full Version : Add Voice Input Button

06-24-2010, 3:16 PM
If swype put that microphone button into their swype keyboard, I'd be e-mailing everyone I know on android to switch. Without it... it's a non-starter for me. Right now, I can safely text while driving with the voice option. I would never try to swype while driving.

Yes, please. I use both, depending upon whether I'm in private (use voice) or public (use Swype). This means I have to long press, select Input Method, select my choice... Kind of defeats the whole speed thing.

I know that a lot of my friends and I love the voice input button frequently. it's fast and great when driving. If I had that option it would be perfect!

I agree100%. I hate having to switch keyboard just so I can use the voice recognition button.

i've asked for this in emails to the team (using beta on droid incredible) - glad to see i'm not alone!

+3 I agree with this whole-heartedly. It's really my only real gripe about swype. I like to use the voice button from my HTC Sense keyboard when I've got my hands full. It's really the only thing this keyboard is missing.

I'd kill for this button,...
Just sayin'...

The Swype on the Droid X rocks! My wife has one. Can I pull the Swype out of it & have my missing voice input?

Completely agree. I already use this and love Swype.. I can't even imagine using another keyboard. Any time I've tried, it's lasted 5 minutes before I reverted back. The only thing separating this keyboard from perfection is having the voice input button.

Funny, you folks want it there, I WANT IT GONE! what a useless POS the voice system is on Droid. Begone Voice Button, begone Swype Info/Tips Button.

Just got the mytouch4g and have been very pleased with the swype keyboard.

I have the same gripes as everyone else...and that is the voice input button! How can such an awesome app, developed by a genius developer/s, be missing such a thing? If not a button, it would be nice to at least have it in the menu button options.

I also don't like the swype help button. I've learned how to use swype and don't need the help button anymore, thanks.

So...with so many people wondering when is this going to be addressed, has there been any updates? I'm seeing forums back to summer 2010 some time with hints that it will be implemented soon, but how soon?!

I also have the mytouch 4g and just noticed that my friend who had the galaxy S had the voice input button.. did some research and saw that supposedly a year ago this was being implemented but my phone does not have it? What's up with this? it can't be that hard to add!

Not sure if this has been mentioned on this thread before, but upgrading Swype on production devices is up to the discretion of your device's carrier.
