I don't have a data plan and my S3 translates voice to text without

the Internet

I thought we needed a data plan for that to work?

You (mostly) do. There are a small subset of device control commands that
are parsed by the device without needing an internet connection, like
"call John at work", but anything complex, like "what's six times seven"
or "navigate to the Marriott" requires decoding by Google's servers,
which will need a connection.

What about SMS messages.

Can you dictate & then send an SMS text without a data plan?

I think you'll find that you need some kind of Internet connection, whether
it be mobile data (data plan through a carrier), WiFi, or whatever.

No. The speech in a text message is too random for the device to deduce.
Something like "Call (a particular contact) at (home/work/mobile)" or
"Play (artist/album/playlist) is basically selecting from a small finite
pallette of potential word choices already stored on the device. An SMS
could contain any word in the vernacular, which requires a better
computer than what fits in your pocket to parse with reasonable accuracy
in a reasonable time.

I don't think you need internet for sms text from voice.

I'm confused.

For sms texting, you don't need a data plan, so why would you
need a data plan for voice-to-sms texting?

Because the voice to text conversion is done on a remote server, it's
not an app on the phone.

There may be local apps for voice to text. I tried one app for voice to
text and it insisted on having a data connection. I tried another where
it was supposed to work locally but it did not work at all.

That makes sense.

BTW, I need you, SMS, on the alt.home.repair forum (look for the
HASA pool chemical thread with your name in the subject line).
