Gboard/assistant CONSTANTLY changing voice-to-text words with auto-correct turned OFF, and "oh," 0 Recommended Answers 8 Replies 5 Upvotes

I am about at my wits end. No matter how many times I disable the autocorrect feature in gboard, the assistant or keyboard continually changes a word or words that I say to something that I did not say. The most frustrating part is that it will actually show the word or words that I spoke, and yet still change them to something completely different and unrelated to what I said. I want to know why Google or whoever thinks they know better what I'm trying to say than I do.

And for the love of God, why haven't you fixed the "oh,"  problem yet?

Welcome to the Google Assistant help community. 

Does your Android phone have What You Need and Language to use the Google Assistant app?
https://support.google.com/assistant/answer/7172657?hl=en&ref_topic=7658198
 
If so, try each of the following steps before moving on to the next to see if your Google Assistant issue is resolved:
 
Re-install Gboard from the play store?
 
Make sure only Gboard is your enabled keyboard
  1. On your Android phone or tablet, open the Settings app .
  2. Tap System  Languages and input.
  3. Tap Virtual keyboard  Manage keyboards.
  4. Turn ON Gboard and turn OFF the others, if any.
Gboard saves the words you type to help you with spelling, and to predict searches you could be interested in. These words are saved only to your device. You can delete saved words whenever you want.
  1. On your Android phone or tablet, open any app that you can type with, like Gmail or Keep.
  2. Tap where you can enter text.
  3. At the top left of the keyboard, tap Open features menu .
  4. Tap More   Settings .
  5. Tap Dictionary  Delete learned words.
  6. To confirm that you want to permanently remove these words, enter the number provided.
  7. Tap Ok.
Clear the app's cache (Not app's data)
  • You can usually clear an app’s cache through your phone’s Settings app.  Settings can vary by phone. For more info, contact your device manufacturer.
  • Temporarily free up space when you clear cached data. This is a short-term solution. Over time, cached data will build up again.
Tip: If problems continue after you cleared the app's cache and data, you could need to contact its developer. Learn how to contact a developer.
 
On your Android phone open Google Assistant app > mini compass icon on the right side of screen > Explore > tap on your Google account icon > Settings > select Assistant tab > Assistant devices - tap on your device (phone) > enable all selections > disable the first choice for a few seconds and enable again.
 
What happens if you turn your Android phone OFF and back ON.
 
Try clearing the Google (G) app Cache. Important: Settings can vary by phone. For more info, contact your device manufacturer. Clearing cache can free up needed space by removing temporary files. This is a short-term solution. Over time, cache will build up again.
  1. Open your phone's Settings app.
  2. Tap Apps & notifications.
  3. Tap the Google (G) app. If you don't see it, first tap See all apps or App info.
  4. Tap Storage & cache  Clear cache.
Check to see if all of your installed apps on Google Play automatically update at https://support.google.com/googleplay/answer/113412?hl=en
 
Is your Android operating system updated? Open Android Settings > System (or About Phone) > Advanced > System Update > Check for update. If device updates, reboot phone when update is complete.
 
If you have a Samsung device, see "Change your default phone assistant" to Google Assistant
AND
Open Bixby app > App details> Bixby Voice > Set by default > disable by default
 
Open Google Play Store > search for Google (G) app > open app > Uninstall > OK > Update > wait for update to install > Restart phone

I've basically tried all of that already. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the apps as brand new, clearing the data and clearing the cache, I've literally tried everything and no matter what I do, with autocorrect turned off, the keyboard voice to text still changes words I actually said to something completely different and unrelated.

And the "oh," problem is widely documented, seems like it shouldn't be that hard to fix that.

And since Google is the developer, and there's really no way to contact you directly about this, what do I do? Because for the most part it seems like you really don't care what people think about your products or if there's problems with them.

Try changing the Gboard Advanced settings and see how it goes. Here's how to do that:
  1. On Android device, tap Settings.
  2. Go to Language & input.
  3. Tap Gboard.
  4. Select Advanced.
  5. Under Learning, try experimenting by changing PersonalizationImprove voice and typing for everyone, and Delete learned words and data preferences.

Um, I never gave my device details yet. 

Android version 10
Google app version 11.17.15.21.arm64
Phone is a OnePlus 6t running lineage 17.1, but I've had this issue with several other phones as well "oh," (for example, the keyboard just put that "oh" there and I didn't do anything), it's not the hardware, it's not the phone, it's the Google part or the assistant.

I'd rather not delete all of my learned words, if there's any way to avoid doing that. But I will try turning off the advanced features.

Wow, i kinda feel bullied by Google a little. Nothing really done on their part about their crappy products, yet they only give you the option to answer yes to if your original question was answered, which is was not.

All of the above comments concerning settings in the phone are pure crap. It is the Google Voice AI that is a problem and the idiots need to look into it. Wait they're not idiots, they are part of the problem.
