How do I turn on the speak to text option

Hi, I just purchased the ZMax PRO and I like to send text messages by speaking them. I tried to click on the microphone in the email app, but it does not seem to be working. Is there somewhere I need to go to turn it on?

Is this a good question?

Bit confused by your question.

You say that want to send audio text message i.e. an audio SMS (really an MMS) but then you say that you are in the email app.

To send an audio text message open the Messages app, then either enter the recipient's name or number first (or do it later), or tap on the green + sign in the type text message line and then tap on the Record Audio icon.

The Record Audio app will open. Tap on the red spot and being recording your message, tap on the white/gray square too stop recording and then select Done.

Your recording will now appear in the Message app where you started (remember if you didn't do it before to enter the recipient's name or number) and then send the message.

To ensure that MMS can be sent from your phone, check that the Data Connection setting in Settings > Wireless and Networks > more > Data Connection is enabled. If not you can only send/receive SMS messages and not send/receive MMS messages.

Its not a hard to understand what's wanted to do and need help with it , what doesn't jeff not understand , . I'm asking the same thing but on my zte blade , I was able to simply hit the microphone on the keypad and it would start listening to what I said and converted it into a ready to be sent Txt message (maybe with some minor corrections pending on any interference noise or a dry mouth) but for the most part it was if not 100 percent accurate maybe 80-95 % . now as to why I currently cannot do this is because I factory reset my phone and lost this feature :( and don't know how to get it back and or better it

This thread is so unhelpful and the response is obviously by someone that likes to act like a know-it-all.
