    Yep, it's definitely available. You just need a keyboard that has a mic built-in. For some stupid reason, when the Eris updated to 2.1, it was promised as a feature, but the built-in keyboard has no mic button!!!

    We started off with the HTC_IME mod apk. At the moment my wife is using Better Keyboard (beware, it's $2.99, but has lots of free skins), which seems to be a lot easier for her to type on than others we've tried. There's a good comparison at:

    Android Central's Keyboard Roundup | Android Central

    It's been a while since we started using speech-to-text, so I don't remember the whole process...but I think you may have to download an engine (in the Android keyboard settings).

    Post back if you give it a try!
