Are you connected to a solid wifi or data connection?

Try restarting your device and try again. And yes you need a data connection as Daniel mentioned.

If its a newer LG device running Android 4.1 + then you don't need a data connection only devices running an older version of Android need a data connection ;-)
I do not have a data package and the speech to text has always worked until recently.

Does it work if you're connected to wifi?

Which LG phone do you have Gordon? The model number (e.g. LG A341, LG-D820 - Nexus 5) would be helpful.
