Potty mouth...

Hey all...

If you use an Android phone and use the voice-to-text feature in Gboard (the Google keyboard) to dictate your messages, you may have noticed that your "offensive" words are being censored.

This issue has been on and off for over a year and the solution, for now, is to turn-off "Faster Voice Typing". You also have to make sure the setting to "block offensive words" (I believe there are three locations for that- nice job, Google).

There are too many Android variants out there for me to give specific instructions, but it's basically, SETTINGS->LANGUAGE AND INPUT->ON-SCREEN (OR VIRTUAL) KEYBOARD->GBOARD->VOICE TYPING.

Hope that helps...

Those who say that it can't be done shouldn't interrupt those who are doing it.

Democrats are to America what mold is to bread.
