Hi Chris…I swear I can’t find this tutorial…hope it’s not something I dreamed! You did a little segment on this, went like this…”If you get lazy and just tired of typing, dictate what you want to say, then hit this button and your message will be typed out!” I hope you can help me with this? My apologies if this option doesn’t exist!Smile

Babara – I think you’re referring to our show on typing faster. It goes over several features of your phone’s on-screen keyboard, including the microphone key which is for dictation. Check out the whole show here:  How to Type Faster and Easier on your Smartphone

Here’s the written article all about the keyboard:  Back to Basics: Your smartphone’s keyboard

We also did a show focused on Dictation – but it’s an oldie: Episode 93: Voice Dictation

Hope that helps. If you have further questions, reply here.
