    "The Text-to-Type option in Messages now displays spoken text in real time rather than waiting for an entire message to be complete before displaying text. "

    For the life of me, I can't enable this. I can't find the setting in Settings > Messages or elsewhere.

    Anybody have this same problem?

    I don't think there is a setting to enable it. It just works for me and I didn't turn anything "on".

    Are you referring to how the mic input displays what you are saying as you say it rather than saying a sentence and then waiting for the words to appear?

    Does this work offline or do we need a online connection?

    Maybe it's limited to certain devices? What iOS device are you using?

    Apple needs to update the description to:

    "When using voice dictation the words you speak now appear in real time".

    You don't have Siri disabled by any chance do you? What exactly happens if you go to compose a iMessage for example and press the Mic icon and talk?
