Hello. Iím a brand new Nexus 7 user. Iíve had it for only 24 hours! So far, so good, except I do have a question about the Swype Beta. Hopefully, I can get help with it here, please.
I installed Swype on my Nexus 7 (the 16 GB edition). I then decided to try speech-to-text. I viewed a few video demos on You Tube.
In each demo, the narrator tapped a microphone key, and that initiated the SPT function.
I could not for the life of me find that mic key anywhere. I tried using SPT in Gmail, and couldnít. I tried using it in Evernote, which I also installed. I couldnít.
I uninstalled Swype, and then found the mic key. I can now use SPT and am incredibly impressed with it. (I will have to install a WiFi Hot Spot finder to see if I can use it at work.
Itís excellent on my home network.)
So, hereís the question: Does Swype disable speech-to-text when you install it? Is there a way to use SPT while Swype is installed?
Is there a way to display the mic key so I can tap it and dictate? If so, what is the procedure?
Is the eliminating of the mic key a bug in the beta, or is it a known design choice?
Thank you for your assistance. J. Danniel
