Are you tired of your Android device automatically converting your voice into text? Don’t worry, you can easily turn off this feature and regain control over your messaging. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the steps to disable the voice-to-text functionality on your Android device.

Step 1: Open the Settings App

To begin, locate and tap on the Settings app on your Android device. This app is typically represented by a gear icon and can be found either on your home screen or in the app drawer.

Step 2: Navigate to Language & Input

Once you have opened the Settings app, scroll down or search for the option labeled System and tap on it. Next, locate and tap on Languages & input. This option may also be labeled as Language & keyboard, depending on your device.

Step 3: Select Virtual Keyboard

In the Languages & input menu, you will find a list of available keyboards installed on your Android device. Look for an option called Virtual keyboard, On-screen keyboard, or something similar, and tap on it to proceed.

Step 4: Choose Your Keyboard App

In this step, you will see a list of installed keyboard apps on your device. Select the keyboard app that you are currently using; for example, if you are using Google Keyboard or Gboard, tap on it to access its settings.


If you are unsure which keyboard app you are using or want to disable voice-to-text functionality across all apps, look for an option called “Default Keyboard” or “Manage Keyboards”. This will allow you to make changes that apply system-wide.

Step 5: Configure Keyboard Settings

Once you have accessed the settings for your keyboard app, look for an option labeled Text-to-speech, Voice input, or similar. Tap on it to view and modify the voice-to-text settings.

Step 6: Disable Voice Input

In this final step, you will find an option to enable or disable voice input. To turn off voice text on Android, simply toggle the switch next to Voice input or a similar option to the off position.

Congratulations! You have successfully disabled voice text on your Android device. Now you can enjoy a messaging experience without any unwanted voice conversions.
