Voice Input Language

JUMP TO SOLUTION

After the software update, I cannot change the voice input language. It's stuck on Spanish and when I try to change it, the option "English" is grayed out and it wont let me change it.

Hey, 

@Sammydoll420

The Samsung voice input language is linked directly to the Samsung keyboard input language. The default action for switching between languages is to swipe the keyboard space bar.  I only had the English language installed so I was stuck with that.

I changed this by opening system settings, general management, language and input, on screen keyboards, Samsung keyboard, languages and types, manage input languages. I added Spanish.

Now I have two languages installed. I opened a Samsung messages app conversation and brought up the Samsung keyboard. It's set to English, swipe the space bar and it switched to Spanish. I opened Samsung voice input and it's now set to Spanish. It's identical to the screenshots that you provided.

It's working great. 

Best regards,

I couldn't change it. So I disabled it and it automatically uses the Google text to speech. It's better in my opinion.

That's awesome! I think I'll just stick to the Google text to speech because it's not picky on the words I use. Samsung types out what it wants to when I use slang 😒 but thanks again!
