    I installed Handcent SMS, works fine, except I see no option for speech-to-text when creating new txt msg or replying to received msg. When long pressing an input field, my only options are for keyboard selection - Android keyboard or Handcent keyboard. No option for voice/speech to text input. No microphone icon anywhere on Handcent app screen.

    Installed TTS extended as suggested on handcent.com website - no change.

    What am I missing?

    Or if you have the pop up enabled the middle icon (mic) is speech to text, and the right button (speaker) is text to speech.

    Yes, thank you guys for that. When I originally installed it I could not figure out how to get it to let me talk my text out so I uninstalled it. I did not want to be one of those people though who give something in the Market a crappy rating because I personally didn't know what I was doing so I just waited until somebody else made this thread. I actually like the app now and it is well worth the download. I like customizing the colors and such as well. 5 star app for me!
