    There should be a mic symbol on your keyboard where the comma used to be in stock. I'm rooted and have used the speech to text for email and texting. It is very accurate.

    It is quite awesome (need some command-words though).

    FYI: Instead of tapping the little mic button, alternatively you can swipe left-to-right across the entire keyboard and the speak prompt will pop up. Excellent for drunk-texting. ;)

    Google speech-to-text: Not only does it faithfully render your slurred gibberish, it spells the words correctly! If you mumble something about ostriches and dune buggies, Google speech-to-text is listening, ready to deliver maximum confusion and amusement to the recipient!

    But no seriously: it does need command-words. I want a guide or a dictionary or something. How do you hyphenate words, without using the durn keyboard?

    Thanks for the reminder. I saw that demonstrated on a video when Google
    released the Nexus and completely forgot.
