Yeah OK, I'm giving this text to speech thing a try. I don't normally use it. I would think that text to speech is very dependent on your Internet connection, at least it is with my automobile. I am dictating this on an S21 ultra 512K512K using Samsung keyboard and so far I haven't found and so far I haven't found any issues with it other than it just repeated the 512K. It does take a bit to get used to it.

I'm not questioning you're experienced but for me it doesn't seem all that bad.
Your best option would be to put in an error report via the Samsung Members app as this forum is a user 4 as this forum is a user form and not for putting in bug reports.
I do see that it duplicates some things that are being dictated and that to me is a bug.

This is typed on my PC.  While dictating I find the most difficult thing is knowing what you are going to say without stuttering or repeating.  The speech engine did repeat things a number of times and I was smoothly dictating during those sections so it seems to be a bug to me.  Dictating is not my cup of tea though.

I found a solution,  hallelujah. I swear it was so annoying on this expensive device. Here's the solution:

 

Settings > General Management > Keyboard List and Default >

..now turn off the toggle switch for "SAMSUNG VOICE INPUT." Leave on the option above it for "Google voice typing." 

 

Now when you go to your text inbox and hit the microphone, google voice text will pop up with a one time notification, which looks slightly different from the samsung voice. So far so good!

(PS - Hopefully you set your "ok google" feature up when you set your phone up).

I've been reading a lot of different forums about this issue (which was happening in 2017) and that works for some, but not for others. I think google is trying to get us to use Gboard, but even that isn't working for everyone. My phone is an S9, and my friend started having the issue on his phone at the same time mine started. Samsung said that there's nothing they can do if it happened after an update.
