How to get Google Voice Typing to work on Xiami Redmi Note 2
I have started this tutorial where I had lost all hope of getting my keyboard to accept audio input. I had installed all the Google apps I thought would make it work and still, nada!
I then tried to give Google Keyboard permission to edit the microphone and found Xiami’s Security app on my Redmi Note 2 did not list the keyboard as an app that could be given the permission to record audio.
So, I decided to uninstall Google keyboard. I managed only to uninstall the updates, the app still ran and still did not accept audio input. So I did the following:
- Click on settings
- Scroll to installed apps
- Scroll to Google Keyboard
- Click on force stop (I thought this would finally uninstall the app)
- Navigate to your sms app
- Click on compose
- it should activate the dictation as that’s the only way you’ll be able to input.
The above worked and shocked me. Audio input is still working. Note I have already downloaded the audio offline speech recognition file.
