I have a brand new  Galaxy S20 FE, and when I use voice to text, it duplicates almost everything I say.  The following is an example of what I get when I read this paragraph. :

This phone was just activated yesterday, new out of the box.  This is useless.  Is there a fix? Is my phone defective?

After hours of messing around, I solved the problem for mine. In phone settings, Under General management> Keyboard list and default, both Google Voice typing and Samsung voice input were both turned on. I turned off Samsung. Then under General management> text-to-speech, I changed the preferred engine to Google, and that fixed it. Setting both to Samsung did not work.

Me too. Did this lady year at some point, then corrected itself in about 2 weeks. No idea what happened. Stumped tech support.

My Note 10 just started doing it like 2 weeks ago. I too think it happened after a software update.  I can't find any solutions yet, but I'm seeing many posts in the last 2 weeks of users having the same issue.
