Is there a secure way to do speech-to-text that ideally uses end-to-end encryption and guarantees my privacy on an android phone? A solution that requires root access is acceptable, as is a solution that requires self-hosting a speech-to-text service (if so please specify).

It would be preferable if this speech-to-text solution was accessible by using the microphone icon on the android keyboard.

Thank you.

  • There are some self-hosted solutions, but I'm not sure how reliable they are and what languages they support (I just remember one name: PocketSphinx). But I'm afraid that microphone icon hooks into Google's speech detection in a hardcoded way (not sure, though).
