Has anyone else noticed, that recently when you try to dictate a text message or anything with the speech function it makes the noise, has the 3 pink/purple lights - then just does nothing whatsoever?

Ie. It just doesn't act like it's heard anything, even when you're talking clearly and loudly?

I have been finding the speech to text function working better than ever. It seems to have improved to me and is working great. I am able to quite typing on the keyboard and use the speech to text on most of my texts and email messages now.

I've noticed it too.

Frequently my voice-to-text works exactly as OP's does. I get the purplish dots and then nothing. It doesn't matter what app I'm using.

Same thing for me.. seems to happen when I try to speak out punctuation, but can't narrow it down to anything specific.
