I have a S22+ & can't seem to find the talk to text microphone button that I've always seen on all my other devices? Any suggestions on how to get this fixed, if even possible!!

 
Thanks in Advance.

First it depends on what keyboard you are using, the default keyboard is Samsung keyboard. The microphone could be in one of a few places. If you have the keyboard toolbar enabled, it might be one of the buttons on there, or it could be behind the "..." menu on the far left of the toolbar.

If you can't find it, but are using Samsung keyboard, you can change the keyboard settings through the default settings app. Search for "keyboard list and defualts" and make sure that either "Samsung voice input" and/or "google voice typing" shows up. Make sure at least one of them is turned on.
On the same page, make sure "show keyboard button on navigation bar" is on; this let's you change keyboards and will let you switch to a voice keyboard it's not working off your main keyboard. To switch, open the keyboard, and in the bottom right, there should be a button that looks like a keyboard, tap on it, and then tap on one of the voice keyboards that show up.

Hope this helps 🙂

Are you using the Samsung messages/keyboard? If so open it and tap on the cogwheel icon over the top of the keyboard >scroll down to reset to default settings>reset keyboard settings. See if that will bring the microphone icon back.

I have no idea what you are talking about in your head or you say talk to text option in your message you say something about printouts. Suggestion: kindly rephrase your concern and provide a screenshot if possible.
