How do I get Voice-to-Text back in my Android 4.3 for SMS texting?

All of a sudden, I lost the little microphone icon in my default SMS
text application on the T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S3 on Android 4.3.
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7373/12344496284_046d7946d1_o.png

This is an important omission, since I do offline speech-to-text
SMS text messages (I almost never use my fat fingers to text).

To get back that offline microphone app, I suspect I need to *install*
something, because it *was* there from the beginning - but now it's
(suddenly) gone!

But what free app do I download to get *back* that little microphone?

Googling, I first thought that little microphone which is now missing
in the keyboard might have originally come from "Google Voice Search":

since before I upgraded from Android 4.2.1 to Android 4.3.

Q: What is the app that adds a microphone to the standard keyboard?

Well, if I knew what had put the little offline microphone into the
default keyboard in the first place, I could look up the terms and
conditions - but I don' think it was trialware because the voice-to-text
microphone was on the phone for more than a year.

That keyboard microphone disappeared about the time I upgraded to Android 4.3.

What I've done, in the meantime, is just now I installed a dozen purported
offline voice-to-text applications.

Maybe one of those will bring the microphone back.

None of these voice-to-text apps worked, so, something is missing:
http://farm6.staticflickr.com/5548/12348644203_c7fe100b04_o.gif

Each app gave a different (but similar) error:
http://farm3.staticflickr.com/2835/12348936623_2c9096ec75_o.png
- Sorry, you have no app for voice recognition.
- You have no app to recognize speech, sorry.
- Recognizer not present.
- Recognition service is not available.
- Not a system app. Illegal installation.
- Voice recognition is not installed.

Perhaps the most detailed error message was:

Runtime Error: No activity found to handle
intent {
act=android.speech.action.RECOGNIZE_SPEECH
(has extraqs)}

But, since "Google Search" *is* installed, what are these error
messages trying to tell me is actually missing?

I'm pretty sure something is missing, but what?
Here's all the "google stuff" I have installed:
http://farm4.staticflickr.com/3832/12349659853_fb72dfb18f_o.png

- Gmail
- Google Play Movies & TV

Check settings, language & input, mine works (v4.0.4) and is set to default
to Google keyboard, Google voice typing is set to automatic ...should place
a microphone on keyboard when you tap input area!

I've hit every single button or option in Android 4.3 "Language & Input".

They moved it, in 4.3 to:

I even tried removing and adding "Google Keyboard", all to no avail.

Once Google Keyboard is selected in "Language and input", clicking

There's nothing else about the audio or microphone input to the
keyboard.

I think my problem is that neither I, nor anyone else, knows how
audio works on Android. Something fundamental is missing or corrupt.

I apologize for not being specific enough in the request.

What I'm trying to accomplish, is, speaking into the phone, using the
microphone of the phone instead of the keyboard, and having that spoken
sentence transcribed into an SMS text message.

I'm pretty sure "something" deep inside the operating system is
corrupted, since I've uninstalled and re-installed multiple keyboards,
and a half-dozen voice-to-sms programs, and all those speech-to-text
programs complain about a missing underlying hook:
RuntimeError: No activity found to handle intent
{act=android.speech.action.RECOGNIZE_SPEECH (has extras)}

At this point, I probably need to either find someone who knows what that
underlying program actually is; or, if it's an inconspicuous part of the
Android operating system, then I need to re-install the OS.

Is there a way to update the Android operating system on a T-Mobile
Samsung Galaxy S3 running Android 4.3 when the operating system is
slightly corrupted (but otherwise up to date already)?

Unfortunatly, I've installed so much on this Android phone that I really
do not know /when/ the problems started.

While cleaning things up, /think/ I may have uninstalled a Google "service"
that apparently controls the voice recognition.

So, what I really need to figure out is how to get a system /back/ to
where it was, with respect to all the /required/ services.

Does anyone know if there is a way to check for all the required
services (because clearly I'm missing one of them)?

Easy. Make a backup before you start experimenting.
No backup? In that case you are sure out of luck.

Every carrier has its own suite of installed apps. I have a Credo phone.
I get Google Play, Plus Samsung and Sprint Stores. You should be able to
flash it back to Factory. Backup your data files onto a removeable.
Remove it. Then Restore.

Apparently, on my Galaxy Victory it was not wanting to work if I
did not have a valid Internet connection. I installed the Google
Voice Typing module for the XPosed Framework and now I have voice
typing when-ever I need it.

Needing an Internet connection is true of the Apple devices as well -
voice recognition is done centrally, not on the device itself which may
lack the capacity for such a job.

On Android devices (not sure which versions, certainly 4.2 and later)
there's an option to download the speech recognition engine for offline use.

This happened to me on Android 4.4.2.  I got the microphone back.  I
don't know if 4.2 is the same, but maybe it is.  Try this:

Go to Settings->Language & Input and make sure Google Voice Typing is
checked.

I know you've done that, but that's just half of what needs to be done.

Then touch Language, and select English.  Without that, I think the
program still won't give you the microphone because it has to know what
language you're using before it can transcribe voice.

If you see an 'Auto' option for language, you can experiment with it,
but I don't think it will work.  I think you need to use 'English'.

If that works or fails, let us know.

I got voice typing back by a much more circuitous route but I think the
above is all I really had to do.

The above advice came from a fellow name H Pham on the Yahoo Tracfone
Users group.  If this works, he's the guy who deserves the credit.  If
it doesn't work I'll tell you the terrible way I got it working, which

One way or another, I'm pretty sure it will work and I think it very
likely that it's a configuration problem, not a problem with needing to
Google Translate to set the right configuration settings for me.  I
don't think the software itself was needed.

I just posted a different solution that worked on an LG 34C running
4.4.2.  The solution you posted is clearly a good one for Danny's device.

I suspect that what is happening is that there's a configuration setting
and various apps that need that setting, one being Google Search and
another being Google Translate, set it automatically.

It will be interesting to see if turning off Google Search causes the
microphone to revert.

Most strongly-typed programming languages do this. And MS SQL Server too, I think (CMIIW). -- dave ---------------------------(end of broadcast)--------------------------- TIP 1: subscribe and unsubscribe commands go to majordomo@postgresql.org Am Freitag, 8.

Where is the Android "Task Manager" on Android 4.3 ?
Whenever my Android S3 TouchWiz Home phone asks me to select something to use to send something, I get the message: Clear defaults Clear default app settings by going to Task manager > Clear default and tapping Clear OK.

Japanese text entry problem Mac OS X 10.3.4 -- Kotoeri grayed out in i8n text entry palette
I've activated kotoeri text entry (romaji, hiragana, etc) in the internationalization system preferences dialogue. I can successfully enter text in Japanese kana, however, there is no kanji conversion as you would expect with hitting the space key. It's as if the dictionary used is missing. Does anyone know the path to the dictionary file that kotoeri uses, or is there some setup component that I may be missing? I have an older ti powerbook that is upgraded to 10.3.4 Thanks Sean ...

Samsung Galaxy S4 to get Android 4.3 and Galaxy Gear compatibility next month
<http://www.theinquirer.net/inquirer/news/2293001/samsung-galaxy-s4-to-get-android-43-and-galaxy-gear-compatibility-next-month> <quote> KOREAN PHONE MAKER Samsung has announced that its flagship Galaxy S4 smartphone will get bumped to Android 4.3 Jelly Bean in October. The firm revealed the news during its IFA Mobile Unpacked press conference on Wednesday, following the unveiling of the 5.7in Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and its Galaxy Gear smartwatch. Samsung hasn't spoken in specifics, instead saying vaguely that the Samsung Galaxy S4 will receive the upgrade to Android 4.3 "at some point in October", likely just before the arrival of Google releases Android 4.4. Kitkat. As well as the Galaxy S4, users of the Samsung Galaxy S3 can also expect to receive the update to Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. </quote> -- Religion is the masterpiece of the art of animal training, for it trains people as to how they shall think. -Arthur Schopenhauer On Thu, 26 Sep 2013 11:52:01 GMT, Crabbit Bampot wrote: > <http://www.theinquirer.net/inquirer/news/2293001/samsung-galaxy-s4-to-get-android-43-and-galaxy-gear-compatibility-next-month> > > <quote> > KOREAN PHONE MAKER Samsung has announced that its flagship Galaxy S4 > smartphone will get bumped to Android 4.3 Jelly Bean in October. > > The firm revealed the news during its IFA Mobile Unpacked press > conference on Wednesday, following the unveiling...

As Android gets popular, so does Android malware
http://www.cnn.com/2011/TECH/mobile/08/04/lookout.threat.report.gahran/ (CNN) -- As Android devices get more popular, they're becoming a more attractive target for cybercriminals. Consequently, if you use an Android smartphone you are now 2.5 times more likely to encounter malware (malicious software) than you were six months ago.

And yet the Linux loons have been telling us for years that popularity has no bearing on the number of attacks. IOW the reason Linux hasn't been attacked in the past is due to it's security not it's obscurity. Guess they were wrong once again. No surprise.

Android still has horrible text messaging bugs that'll get you fired, busted, or otherwise embarrassed
http://www.engadget.com/2010/12/31/android-still-has-horrible-text-messaging-bugs-thatll-get-you-f/ Android still has horrible text messaging bugs that'll get you fired, busted, or otherwise embarrassed Pardon us if the headline is a little sensational, but this is one that we've personally experienced -- and it's not pretty. For at least the last couple versions, Android has been plagued with a couple extremely serious bugs in its text messaging subsystem that can ultimately end up causing you to text the wrong contact -- even contacts that you've never texted before. There appear to be a few failure modes; the one we definitely experience on the Gingerbread-powered Nexus S involves being routed to the wrong thread when you tap it either in the Notifications list or the master thread list in the Messaging application, so if you don't notice, you'll end up firing a message to the **wrong person.** On Fri, 11 Nov 2011 15:53:53 -0500, Jackie DeNardo wrote: > Pardon us if... ....we lie through our teeth.

HDR mode is nice but Camera won't STAY in HDR mode (Android 4.3, T-Mobile, SIII)
I have the T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S3 with Android 4.3 and all I want is to set the camera to *stay* in HDR mode. I can easily set it to go into HDR mode each time: 1. Open the default "Camera" app, 2. Press "Settings->Shooting Mode->HDR". But, when I close the Camera app and open it again, the app defaults to "Shooting Mode = Single Shot". How do I set the default Android 4.3 Camera app to simply *stay* in HDR shooting mode? On Wed, 07 May 2014 12:05:12 -0500, Liam O'Connor wrote: > ... How do I set the default Android 4.3 Came...

Getting Adobe Flash videos to run on Android 4.4
I had solved this one under 4.3 but since upgrade to 4.4 I'm back to "Your device does not support Flash". The DEVICE (latest Nexus 7 WiFi only) clearly CAN run them, since I've seen it do so many times, it's the SOFTWARE that won't. This is a stupid niggle, since many people post interesting video clips to Facebook that use Flash. I suspect many people will want to run Flash, so any ideas how to do this? Tim.

Surrounding text with text
I was wondering if it was possible to surround a text body with text like so: +--------------+ |ABCDEFGHIJKLM | |H N| |A Main Body O| |L Text goes P| |B here Q| |-=+_ZYXWVUTSR | | | | | | | | | +--------------+ This seems far-fetched, but just curious.

Getting kind of abstract text snippets from text nodes
Hi everybody, I am about implementing a little search engine that searches a phrase over xml text nodes. I got that all working fine but what I want as the results is not the complete text of the textnode, I would like to make an abstract like result list (such output that you get with google searches. For eg .... I am the <b>substring</b> from a complete text node ... where "substring" is the search term. The problem is simple (I think): I want to extract all the text parts of the complete text node, where search searchterm is highlighted, surrounded by the text like 30 characters. I found an intersting post "cut down text" which is almost that what I am looking for, but there the text is just trimmed by x characters. Is anybody here, that has an "elegant" way to solve that or some hints that get me to the solution? I am not able to use regex (would be nice though) My parser is Sablotron so I am restricted to the functions that I get. (1.0). Any help is greatly appreciated. regards, Andreas W Wylach Think about dividing the text into three parts: before your target, the target itself, and after the target. Process each appropriately.
