Voice-to-Text is an optional feature for the keyboard. It transcribes your voice as you begin to verbally compose a message. The transcription is handled in an encrypted and non-user identifiable way with our partner Rev.ai. These transcriptions are never stored anywhere, nor is this information used in any way for other purposes like improving transcription services.
Voice-to-Text requires cell data for the transcriptions, if this is a concern for you and your SIM plan, we'd recommend disabling Voice-to-Text functionality.
Voice-to-Text is limited to the English language.
The keyboard settings are located at:
SETTINGS > PREFERENCES > GENERAL > KEYBOARD
Auto-Capitalization means that the first character when composing a new message will automatically be capitalized. Toggle this setting ON or OFF.
