Talk to text is not working

I just got my Galaxy S21 and though I love the phone, something is not right with the dictation feature.  I dictate my text messages and my Viber messages, because I do so many during the day, they hurt my hand when I manually typ.  My Galaxy 7 was perfect.  I never had any problems.  With this new phone, I have times when I speak and no words appear and then a few days ago I started getting repeat phrases.  It has steadily gotten worse and this is impacting my business.

I went under Settings - General Management - Text To Speech - Preferred Engine and I switched to Google from Samsung, but that did not correct the issue, so I switched back.

Can someone please help?

This is not a text-to-speech issue, it is the opposite, it is a voice input issue.  The Samsung S21 voice input engine is broken.  It is a known issue but will need to be repaired and sent as an update to S21 owners.  The temporary solution to this problem is easy to implement.  You must go to your settings and open the "General Management" section, then "Keyboard list and default," and turn off "Samsung voice input."  Make sure that "Google voice typing" is turned on.  The problem will be fixed.
