If your phone is android or iPhone you should have native speech to text you may have to download from relative app store. Most sms tools are enable for voice messaging as well as WhatsApp which is available on Apple IOS, Microsoft and Android phones. WhataApp offers typing, cut and pace from clipboard, voice message and finally voice to text or call and video call. Hope this help. This was done by speech to text. Beware make sure you run spell and grammar check as we all have different nuances to our voice. Commercial product Dragon Speak is by far best with a corresponding price tag and a lot of preparation for for you voice training. If all else fails kids and grandkids can probably type your message on a in a tenth of the time.

Good luck and don't get your stress levels as there is always voice-mail or message services 😉 cheers Andy

My phone that already had google programed has voice to text. I did not need to install a separate program.
It helps alot unless I am tired and ny voice not clear.

I find myself having to go back and edit things I type because of spelling errors and slow to remove my pinky finger from the shift key when capitalizing a letter. The results are frustrating and embarrassing! I have written so many technical documents in my career without significant edits. Now I find myself writing things that sometimes makes no sense to me. THerefore, I have to edit everything. (I intentionally didn't correct this one.)

There is talk to text on your mobile if you’re on the iPhone or iPad just look to the left hand side at the bottom once your keyboard is showing , you’ll see a microphone and start to talk ,it may need a little bit of altering here and there But if you talk slowly and watch what you’re saying on the screen it should work out okay I am using it now X😃
