Not what they're talking about mat, they want the voice to text on their keyboard

Try going into settings - language and input - and make sure Google voice typing is checked off /enabled.

Also, I'm not 100% sure if the service uses data at all, but I'm fairly certain that data needs to be enabled if you're running ICS (4.0) or lower for it to work.

Yes! I'm not a Mobile Master for nothing lol

I actually just tried it on my Nexus 4 and it worked without data being on but tested it on the Ace II X demo phone we have on the kiosk and it said data needed to be on.

So it's from 4.1 and above that they incorporated it into the OS it's self
