To enter text by speaking

You can enter text by speaking, in most places that you can enter text with the onscreen keyboard.

1 Touch a text field.

2 Touch the Microphone key on the keyboard (if you set the Microphone key to appear on the symbols keyboard, touch the Symbol key fist).

Or just swipe your finger across the keyboard from left to right.

3 When prompted to "Speak now," speak what you want to enter.

Say "comma," "period," "question mark," "exclamation mark," or "exclamation point" to enter punctuation.

Text that you enter by speaking is underlined. You can delete it, or you can continue entering text to keep it.
